Many, if not most Crohnies have never told the story of their illness. I certainly hadn't before writing The Foul Bowel. It may be because we are embarrassed, worried that people will be grossed out or we just would rather not think about it. But, and I found this, the act of writing it down can be very theraputic. So, if you have read The Foul Bowel and would like to tell your story on here to other Crohnies, please contact me here.
