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.

Not completely Happy Hour

Saturday, July 28, 2018
We went out yesterday to our normal Friday spot in Lee's Summit to join some friends for Happy Hour.  Since our home is between work and the bar, we always make a pit stop at home for me.  I took advantage of the opportunity.

Still, I felt that always familiar pain. On the car ride. Once we walked in.  As I'm writing this. Soon after ordering and enjoying some small snacks, I found myself in the restroom.

I am glad that this establishments restroom is always clean.  The temp is nice. The toilet isn't too old or worn.  The only part that sucks is there is only one toilet.  During busy times, you can easily find yourself waiting.  If you are like me that could be the difference between just making it and small accident.

Luckily, I've been able to make it. That's why it also good to always check out the restrooms, and have your rescue pack together.  Flushable wipes and hand sanitizer.  Hand Sanitizer from Amazon is great for cleaning toilet seats.

Since I was bored, and I had my phone, I thought I would put my thoughts into a visual form.  That is the bathroom stalls door.  I wish that gap wasn't there, but I've seen worse. Then, all I could think of are Humira commercial.  I felt this would be the perfect situation.

Kind of a silly question for my crohnies, but how often do your think about the restroom when you are out.  Do you restrict your outings to places with better restrooms. Or, do you just try to prepare for the worst and roll with it? Let me know.
