Las Vegas and Crohn's
This weekend I went to Las Vegas for the first time. I have been feeling really healthy as far as my Crohn's is concerned but it's always in the back of my head. I knew that we would be doing some heavy drinking and partying as well as some heavy eating.
I went with my four best girlfriends and they are all pretty supportive of my Crohn's. The only thing about people without CD is that they will never truly understand the humiliating moments. The first night that we went out we got all dressed up and went the the club Pure. We had a VIP table and were having a blast. I went to the bathroom and what do you know... I have to go #2. Now, all of you with CD know that taking a dump isn't really truly what everyone else considers it to be. Having to sit in the amazing beautiful restroom and stink the whole place out in my sexy heels and dress is something that I don't think I will ever get used to.
The only way that I can comfortably do things like this is laugh and make it known what's going on. I am the first person to let ALL my friends regardless of sex, know that I just had a serious stink session. If I just keep it inside it's more embarrassing. I have a feeling that this is how most CD sufferers cope.
The drinking really didn't make me feel too hot. I had a bloody BM which scares me a little but I am routinely taking my Humira shots and am not having any symptoms of a flare, regardless of that little glitch! We had an amazing time and I was able to drink lots of yummy drinks and eat some serious grub.
