Patient Perspectives

"I have determined that it is impossible for someone who does not have Crohn's to ever really get what we go through. I think that's the case for all chronic diseases, but Crohn's is a secret disease (at least in my case it is), so that doesn't help people relate. I can't even get my husband to fully understand. But, maybe I don't want to either. As much as it frustrates me to always have to explain why I can't eat this or that or shouldn't do this or that, I also like the fact that he forgets about my disease and thinks of me as normal." -- Blog posting from Crohn's Disease Blog
