It's only awkward if you let it be. - Silvia Donahue
This is a nice list of quotes about awkwardness. Having Crohn's Disease is totally awkward. You are always looking for a bathroom to begin with! It doesn't get any more awkward than that.
Then there's trying to explain to people what you have. It has an ugly name, an ugly set of symptoms... and just goes from there. LOL! I guess we just have to laugh and embrace the awkward.
