<p>When you have a disease and live with it for long enough, you tend to lose perspective on what grosses other people out.</p> <p> </p> <p>I'm always talking to others about Crohn's, for awareness, and casually reveal that I've worn adult diapers since I was 32, due to repeat surgeries.</p> <p>Ain't no thang to me, but sometimes, I see people cringe and know when to start becoming a little more vague.</p>
It was me, I'm the guy. You were really annoying so I came up with a funny cop out without hurting your feelings but if you're going to take to the internet about another's health issues you deserve to be called out too.
I doubt you' re actually the guy, but if the guy really was making it up, that's also making light of what is an awful disease for the people whon suffer from it and that's not okay either. So getting on a high horse about OP bitching on the Internet (which I do agree, is terrible), would be really fucking stupid for guy if he were just BSing (no, not making a pun/joke. well not intentionally at least because now is neither the time nor place for.it)
Those issues can cause someone to seem flighty or dismissive. It can stop someone from being able to go on adventures or dates or spur of the moment get togethers. If he's confident enough to talk about it that's a good thing, sure it may not be what you wanted to hear or talk about but regardless of his reason for telling you one thing it did was explain why he might not be able to hang out sometimes or why he has to disappear for unknown amounts of time while interacting with you. It's a good
Maybe was not the best time for him to bring it up (especially in great detail) considering it sounds like it was the first time meeting...probably would not make for the greatest first impression....Either way, still a good idea to try to be a bit sensitive. IBS and other digestive diseases can be an awful battle to face alone. Maybe he was just looking for some emotional support? Or maybe he's faced it so long that he just has no filter about it anymore...
