I feel normal

After reading different threads for the last 4 hours, I feel human again.
For the last couple of years I've felt like I was on an island and couldn't talk to anyone. The embarrassment of this illness has made me a hermit. I can point out every bathroom within a 45 mile radius of my home. But reading the stories of everyone in this forum actually put a smile on my face. I can empathize with all the stories of ruined relationships, not quit making the bathroom, feeling like a drug tester and of not smiling at family functions because of the pain and fatigue. Thank you all for sharing your stories.
I fell normal, again.

Hi Chris and welcome! Isn't it great to find a place where you feel you are not alone?! Joining the forum has helped me so much to accept and better understand my disease. I know you will continue to find it just as helpful. I look forward to seeing you around!
