The thing with crohns is I look perfectly normal on the outside. I can smile like I’m happy, walk normally and talk like it’s going out of fashion. It’s a facade, a very good front.
It’s easy for people to forget that I have an incurable disease or for those that don’t know me to think I’m full of bull.
Now I’m not saying I want to be treated like I’m unwell but just that it to be recognised that when I say I’m hurting, I’m believed . Or when you are too tired to do your normal day to day activities or go out with friends, not to be met with, “oh excuses” or “Well you look fine”
