I was diagnosed with Crohn's in November of 2007. 2 short months after my father passed. I thought I was having ulcers from the stress. My husband does not understand. My mom does not understand. My mamaw does not understand. NO ONE understands! And I don't understand why they don't. I try to talk to them and explain to them. "Well, it is like my body thinks my insides are some funky disease and it wants to kill them!" I have been on pain meds since I was diagnosed because I am a weakling and can't handle stomach pain at ALL! I used to stay home from school menstral week b/c of the cramps! I just mostly wish my husband understood. It hurts so bad when he tells me to stop "pulling my sick card" He honestly thinks that I just went and got me some Crohn's so I could poor pitiful me! What do you do? How do you heal?
