A Typical Crohn's Disease Monday at the Office


Unbelievable pain this morning. Probably from the crappy food choices and crappy beer choices (maybe I should go back to Corona from Natty light and bud light!). Anyway I had serious stomach pain and was productive my mass printing my emails and reading them in stall number 3. I need to see about an easy way to store reading material in the ceiling panel. I HAVE TO have something to read when i poop. I joke but if there is nothing at a friends house I will read their deodorant and hairspray containers. It's embarassing sprinting down the hall with a newspaper, BrandWeek magazine, or other materials. I want to invent little Crohn's books that fit in your pocket. Imagine the newest John Grisham Book - Playing For Pizza). It is AWESOME and I read in about 3 days (thanks for sending it Mom). Also, if you haven't read Bleachers, it is another John Grisham football book that is awesome.

Anyways, would love to hear feedback so feel free to offer up your stories and tips on dealing with crohn's at work.

What is it about Corona and CD? It's the only beer I can drink and guarantee no flare-up.

Isn't that crazy? I have another friend who says the same. I plan to do some further research Friday night!

I prefer Miller Lite or Amstel...but fried foods usually bother me the next morning so I try to skip the wings at the bar. Smoking is bad and I tend to smoke when I drink. My last 2 flare-ups have followed binge drinking nights capped off by late night food.

My first flare up and diagnosis came after a night of nickel Genessee Drafts at a bar in Castelton, Vermont. I figured it was just beer shits from a keg of nasty beer...coulden't figure out why it lasted a week though..saw the doc for my "flu"...got admitted...
