My journal of my battle with Crohns disease. I have had Crohn's diagnosed since September 2007. In that time I've been through two surgeries, two colonoscopies, and tons of good and bad times. I want to share my experiences with this disorder and hope to hear some feedback from time to time.

I don't know if it is the predisone, but I was not able to go to the restroom for like 5 days straight. It sucked. For five days my stomach was rock hard, and I felt really bloated. It was really weird because I didn't have a feeling that I had to go at any time. I finally had to resort to drastic measures! I used the thing that always works for me. I ate taco bell. It's like the only food that looks the same going in as it does going out. Gross I know. But sure enough. After I ate, I went. And went, and went, and went, and went. I couldn't believe that I was stuck on the toilet for almost an hour. I read stories online about people who have to go and go multiple times a day, so I guess I'm lucky. After that, I felt horrible, but I was relieved. I really hope I don't have to go through this all the time.
