Why IBS, Crohn’s, UC, and UBD Suck
The pain and frequent trips to the toilet are awful, but did you know that the following places don’t even HAVE restrooms?
- most public transportation
- all kayaks, canoes, and small boats
- small planes
- cars stuck in traffic
- a lot of parks and gardens
- some tourist attractions
- non-food stores unless stated otherwise
- mountains, forests, and nature in general (don’t you dare tell me to shit in the woods I S2G I use half a roll of toilet paper every time I have a flare—I’d make a plant go extinct before I found enough leaves to deal with that)
- skydiving, bungee jumping, most crazy fun stuff like that
- a lot of outdoor sports areas
- a lot of work sites and situations, construction zones, etc.
- parts of cities late at night after everything’s closed
- tons of other locations I’d love to visit but can’t
Moreover, there are:
- places with broken/out-of-service restrooms
- places with restrooms currently in use and/or long lines
- places with no water or where it’s been turned off
- places where you basically need a security clearance and a guard to get to a restroom
- places where they have a publicly accessible restroom BUT WON’T LET YOU USE IT UNTIL YOU EXPLAIN THAT YOU’RE GONNA SHIT YOURSELF IF THEY DON’T OR OFFER TO BUY SOMETHING
Nevermind the embarrassment of having to leave situations where your presence is required/expected, wondering if people can hear you go, and missing out on important stuff because you were too busy making friends with the toilet.
Go ahead and tell me it’s not a disability, because I can’t function, and I certainly don’t feel like I’m living my life. This has been a digestive disorder PSA.
Two kinds of trouble in this world: Living, dying.
