Living with Crohn's disease-farts and all!

Part II here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtDgcEK_Td8

Millions of us live with digestive problems such as Crohn's disease and whilst it can be highly embarrassing, the more we start talking about it, the less awkwardness there will eventually be.

Dude I just want to give you a hug, I'm so proud of you, I have Crohns too,
my biggest fear is having an accident in public, what medication are you
on? I'm on humira, omeprazole and pentasa. Have you ever been on medicinal
steroids too? These medications really really help! Steroids give you a fat
ball face and bad acne too though so be prepared! Also if you don't mind
doing it, smoking and vaping weed has kept me the healthiest I've been and
really helps everything, from physical, to mental, to digestive. I'm here
if you ever want to talk, I'm glad I came across your video today

For me, farting is the best! It's not rude to fart, it's funny as hell. I
have had Crohns since I was 19.

How are you doing these days Johnny? (: I am going through a very difficult
phase with my disease and your thoughts gave me strength! I am so alone
with this thing, I get no support from anyone and my chrons is affecting my
life very strongly. Hope you are ok!

Stay strong. I got diagnosed when I was 25 and it literally ruined me for
several years. It has almost killed me once already, and was in intense
pain everyday for five years. I finally got a resection and had my
appendix, ileum and five feet of my lower intestines taken out. As far a
relationships, people are assholes and don't get the pain you're going
through. I felt like I was going through it all by myself even in a
relationship. Bad part is I am divorced and don't think I can handle the
stress of an unbalanced relationship if they can't be supportive of your
situation. I go to the bathroom about 10 times a day after the surgery and
straight away after I eat. It all sucks, but I am not in sever pain all of
the time after the surgery.

I know this video is like from five years ago but well..
I have crohn's disease too, I was just recently diagnosed so I'm new to it
but just to let you know you aren't alone I guess. it's a shitty disease,
literally, and you have nothing to be embarrassed about. farting and
burping and taking a shit once in a while is human, even though we have it
more that regular people, it's still a natural thing your body does you
know? you shouldnt ever feel degraded because of it. and about the
relationships part, I feel the exact same way. all my guy friends now that
I'm I'll but don't really know what are the effects, so I guess with a
partner it's even more difficult. but eventually, the people who truly love
and care for you will still be all in and will stay in your life, and won't
just stay away because you're struggling. just felt the need to say these
things. I wish you all the best and ofcourse to reach remission :)

I wish I could give you a hug and tell you that it's okay. We all all
putting a lot of pressure on ourselves not to do it in front of others
because it really is hard, but we all do it and it should be okay to just
let out. I admire your courage, I love you for it and want to give you an
enormous hug just because I do not want you or anyone else to feel dirty
because of that. I am so sad because I totally get why it must be so hard
to get intimate. I wish i could change it with a snap of my fingers because
even though I don't have crohn's or anything, i also fell dirty sometimes
and feel like I am always required to smell like flowers and be soft and
perfect and that is an impossible role to fulfill because farts happen,
burps happen, sweat happens and it's perfectly fine, water also exists for
washing and when we want to wash we should be able to have that
opportunity. I wish we all just knew how to accept ourselves fully. YOu,
friend are doing something big, you are accepting. And that is a wonderful
thing you are doing for all of us. You are showing everyone that it is okay
to talk about it, and you are talking openly about it. Just, thank you in
the name of humanity. Sorry for lousy writing, but I am going very fast
because I am eager to tell send you this huge amount of love. I don't even
know how i got here, but I am happy I did because It got me closer to
accepting myself fully.

Thanks for sharing your story. I've had crohns disease for 13 years now.
I've found that I feel alone in dealing with it because no one else can
really understand what you're going through if they don't have it
themselves. Lucky for me my older sister had it too so we could always be
honest and truthful about how we were really feeling with each other. She
past away nearly 6 years ago from an accidental drug overdose so that was
hard for sure. I miss having her around as somebody I could relate too so
much. It gets very lonely I guess is what I'm trying to say so sorry you're
having to go through this alone. I also get really tried I have found that
giving myself vitamin b, testortoerine and Vitamin D shots and supplements
has really helped keep my energy levels normal. It's something you may what
to look into. Everyone is different and nothing works for two people quite
the same way but I figured I'd let you know what has been helpful to me. I
have to go to a pain doctor once a month for pain meds and they also check
your hormone levels and try to help that way too. Thanks for sharing again.

Hey I really like your channel and I appreciate the advice on UC. I am 20
and was recently diagnosed with it and have struggled to cope with it
myself. The weakness, tiredness, restlessness, constant intestinal pain,
and people saying I have explosive diarrhea can really get exhausting so I
really appreciate your video. To help take my mind off my sickness and pain
I created an iPhone game called Box of Lies that is a 2 Truths 1 Lie Trivia
game if anyone is interested.

I just thought I would mention it because it would really make my day to
see others playing it and also I have been extremely stressed out about how
I am going to pay for my medical expenses on top of my living expenses on
top of my college expenses since I still can’t hold down a job but if you
are not interested that is fine. As for the people in the comments section,
please keep sharing your stories as they are really helpful. And Jonny,
keep posting great videos. Have A great rest of your day!

Also one more thing.... You have seen the film "ALIEN" right?.... The guy
who wrote it Dan O'bannon also suffered from Crohns disease. And he said
that the "Chest Burster" was influenced from the symptoms of the illness.

Fuck that shit! I have had Crohns disease since late 90's, when i was
studying at medical school and it just all of a sudden felt like someone
stabbed me with a knife in my lower abdomen and had to be taken to
intensive care, and years before that i had sore stomach and intestinal
cramps... I did not even know that i even had it. Now unlike you, i love
burping and farting so to me that was just a plus side to be funny and have
a laugh. I dont give a fuck about that. As i said it comes and goes, and i
am a smoker and a heavy drinker... And last time i felt anything of it was
5 years ago... But then i did not even drink that much. But now.... Oh
man... Older now and it just tore the hell out of me... I was in so bad
pain after a nights drinking that i thought i would have to call the
ambulance. I was in pain, i was shitting blood, my stools were like oak
meals... you name it..

I was looking up videos on our disease.....and this one was the best. The
majority are bullshit "natural healing"....thanks man. I'm from texas and
this makes me want to go to a group that meets in austin. I had to refrain
from talking shit to all the "natural healing" which slams md's for being
"stupid/idiots" which is far from the truth. I'll let them have pain with
their own mistakes for thinking people who've trained for years as apposed
to natural cures....good luck man!

Hi, im 29 and was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease yesterday. I had my first
colonoscopy last week (Had a terrible reaction to the drink, it made me
violently ill for a few days) - they discovered I had ulcers in my small
intestine then gave me a blood test as I wasn't recovering from the
colonoscopy very well. My bloods came back very abnormal (very low iron -
almost anaemic, white blood cells, my inflammatory result was 37 - average
for a normal person is 5). I have an endoscopy on Wednesday along with an
MRI so they can see how many 'ulcers' i have and where they are placed.

So far, I haven't had to deal too much with the embarrassing gas etc (i've
been able to control it to a point) but I'm absolutely struggling with the
cramps / bloating (I assumed it was female pains or having a bad reaction
to something I ate) but in particular the fatigue. I thought I was
depressed not long ago because I couldn't get out of bed.. I haven't had
strength to work out the way I normally do because I tend to become weak
very quickly.. I also want to sleep. A LOT.

Although words like 'Chronic, Incurable, disease and life long' terrify me,
at least I now know what it is (and its NOT BOWEL CANCER!) and there is
hope for leading a normal life. I am looking forward to not feeling like
everything is so hard for me and everything is a struggle.

Thank you for posting this video. I could see how hard it was for you but I
think you may have helped a lot of scared and embarrassed people.

Good luck with moving forward. I hope you find some relief soon.

I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease when I was 10 years old and I'm 14
now. I don't really have to go to the toilet all that much, but I do get
quite a lot of gas and I get really tired. Since I was diagnosed, I've been
through a lot of different medication. I change the medication I take quite
often, and the reason why this happens is because I'm alright when I first
start taking it, but then, after some months, I get worse again, so I
change the medication, and it all happens again. I'm currently taking
injectable Methotrexate (weekly) and Humira (twice a month). I'm feeling
well in terms of Crohn's, but it's very painful for me, both physically and
mentally, to go through this medication. But I always think that it could
definitely be worse, so I try to face everything with optimism.

Thank you for this video, really. I hope you're feeling good and I wish you
all the best.

P.S. - I'm portuguese, so I'm sorry if there's any mistake or if anything
is not very clear.

That sounds familiar for me but I got the stoma quite early so even if
there is noise it is not any smell. You should look for your Diet.
Tiredness is normal especially when you should go out to have some fun and
can find some relief. Relationships are from my standpoint very difficult.
I lived in germany and sometimes people are so root to each other I am very
upset all the time even with women. Sometimes you have to get back to
yourself and stay positive which is the mood for most of self healing

much sympathies for you and your ailment. it takes a lot of courage to talk
about this let alone show your face to strangers. i feel almost embarrassed
just leaving a comment about this as i feel that someone could identify me.
anyway i have suffered similar conditions as you for most of my life and
for the past 10 years my symptoms have worsened but i am able to live a
somewhat "normal" life. i completely understand your concerns about
relationships but maybe you can find a partner who also suffers from this
and thus have a common understanding between you. i just wanted to thank
you for speaking about this as it makes me feel less alone as a sufferer.
best of luck and the courage to face this problem head on.

Join the club, Jonny...
I was diagnosed a ONE DAY after my Birthday 's back in 2013. Since then it
has been quite challenging uphill struggle. Had an allergic reaction to
Azathioprine and almost didn't make it... Mercaptopurine was a living hell,
that's how I can describe it... Then kidney failure, chollesystitis,
problems with liver, back and knees, etcetra.
Then we tried Adalimumab which truly is an miracle drug, you know. Felt
better after 4 days since first injections. Have you tried any biologics?
I wish and pray that someone somewhere finds a cure for this...

Do you know that we have more bacteria in our bodies then there are human
cells, I really believe that there is a connection between mental health,
and our digestive tract. If the digestive tract is a vital part of our
wellbeing, if its not working properly, it can cause a break down to the
entire system.

I am sorry to hear you have suffered so much with this. I know its a
strange question but have you ever heard of nam myoho renge kyo?

JONNY -- Me again, Donald in Cardiff. No shame about your gas -- but I can
only guess how awkward you must feel sometimes. Actually, no I can't guess.
Don't have any idea. I have OFTEN wondered why we humans feel such shame
about our shit, and so much disgust about what is a very natural and
essential process for us to survive on Earth -- digestion, that is. This
video was posted four years ago -- so did you ever find people to talk to
about this comfortably -- some acceptance. You're breaking my heart about
your fear of having a relationship because you might feel embarrassed and
dirty while making love. Jesus, the details you share are incredible. I
never knew anything about Crohn's disease previously. But again, you just
communicate it so gently but clearly. PLEASE respond. I think we could help
each other. I'm moving on to another video of yours called "Blushing &
blinking". -- Donald in Cardiff

you seem so shy making this video is adorable :X but really you are so
brave! I have ulcerative cultic, which is basically the same thing, but do
have a few differences. I know exactly the way you are feeling. I was
fourteen when I was diagnosed, and I went about three months before without
it, and honestly I thought I was dying before. I was so terrified. when I
found out what it actually was I was relieved at first, then I was like,
crap now I have a life long disease? what will happen? can I have kids? how
relationships work? what if I'm in the middle of class, and suddenly my
stomach sounds like a monster and I have to go to the bathroom? for me,
more of the problem with this disease is that it is embarrassing. I can
deal with the pain, I have learned over the years how to coup with it. but
there is nothing you can do about the sounds and smells, and it is just
terrible. I try not to really tell people to many details about it, I just
tell them I have a stomach problem and that is all, if they ask for more
details I will tell them. luckily no one as really made a big deal about it
and I was able to find a boyfriend who is understanding about it. I just
hope other people are that lucky. again you are so brave to make this video
it was very inspiring and I could relate so much to it!

Question for you Jonny. I do not have Crohn's disease but was diagnosed
with IBS at the age of 15. I am a 19 year old male and amongst other
symptoms I suffer from extreme bloating. I am very slim (5' 9'' and 10st 2)
but often after eating a meal I could pass for being pregnant. My stomach
blows up like a balloon and can become enormous. Not ever particularly
painful, but it is uncomfortable and very embarassing in social situations.
Have you ever experienced anything similiar and if so, how have you managed
to deal with it, and /or conceal it?

You're such a wonderful human.
I don't have Crohns, but I'm very interested to learn as I had never heard

Hi Jonny, really appreciate you making this video and being so honest. I
was diagnosed with Crohn's just a few months ago at the age of 23 and I'm
still coming to terms with it. All the symptoms you described and the
feelings you were talking about for example having intimate relationships
is exactly how I feel too. The muscle spasms are something that are really
quite scary and unpleasant and I only realised a few weeks ago that they
were due to Crohn's. How are you doing now seeming as this video was made a
few years ago? I've started two types of medication ; Pantese and
Azathioprine but I'm not sure that they are helping too much yet although
I'm definitely better than the first flare up I had. Just nice to know how
other people with Crohn's get on some years after they are diagnosed and to
know the little things that help them to deal with it :)

I have Chron's Disease and I totally understand where you are coming from.
When you are flaring, you're miserable. You can't eat what everyone else
eats. You're gassy. You have this awful, cramping feeling. You can poop
yourself. Your joints hurt and you're tired. Jobs don't understand. Family
and friends don't understand. Sometimes, it's frustrating. I try to have
fun with it though. My first date with my first boyfriend, I kept farting
until I pooped myself. Another time, I was in my friend's vehicle and I
pooped myself and her daughter told everyone at church I pooped in her
mommy's car. I just laugh it off and hope that the people around me will be

Автор Marcelino1098 ( назад)
I know exactly how you feel. I reconize a lot of the things you are going
throught. I never really had farting problems but I had to get a surgery
because the pain was insane and the medication didn't help me anymore. I
was happy that they would remove the sick part so I had a lot of hope for
the time coming but too bad, the disease returned very quickly and it
seems that I have a pretty agressive form of Crohn. So I had to get
medication again but it didn't and doesn't really help up to this day. One
of the good results was that i was a lot more hungry, so in those months i
ate a lot more than i would normally do but i didn't gain any weight. But
there my other problem started, the farts.... 4-5 hours after I ate
something I feel the gas in my stomach. And around the end of the afternoon
5-6 pm the farting starts( sometimes earlier). I keep on going the whole
evening till i go to the toilet again. So my social life( going out with
friends,seeing family etc) is also very thin. Im affraid of going
somewhere. The other main problem is that I have trouble on the toilet. It
always took pretty long to yeah.. poop... aroud 15-20 min but since the
surgery it has become extremely long. Mostly 30-45 minutes and sometimes
even up to an hour( 2-3 times a day) . My poop isn't hard aswell, it just
comes bits by bits. I never really know when i'm ''done''.It's very very
tireing. So my biggest problem at this moment are the farts and the visit
on the toilet. Medication isn't really helping me at this moment and the
doctors don't want to research me more or give a new medicin
yet(vedalizumab) because the situation is not ''bad '' enough yet.
The thing that im doing at this moment is eating with a diet. A different
doctor researched me and he said that I have intolerence for cowmilk
protein, soya and i should reduce refined sugars and take a lot of
different grains, and the doctor gave me some probiotics and pure vitamine
d. I'm even trying to eat grainfree for some time to see the results and i
have the idea the farting starts to reduce. But the diet needs 4-6 weeks to
start working. I wonder and hope that it will because I know a man that has
colitus and he's been to this doctor and he is already for 5 years symptom
free (without medication). The diet is changing and hard in the start but
with a good cooking book it's possible! And also a tip, if your affraid for
a colonoscopy or the other 1 via the mouth, ask for some Anesthesia. I fell
asleep and felt nothing! Don't know how that works where you live but here
in Holland you can ask your doctor. Good luck and perhaps this diet is also
something worth trying for you. Or maybe you got a different food
intolerance. Try to ask for tests. I hope it works for me so i can give
these tips to other crohn and colitus patiënts. Goodluck and stay strong
even though it's sometimes very hard!

With respect to relationships let me give you some words of wisdom. There
are plenty of people who will like/love you regardless of whether or not
you have Crohn's. Yes, there are plenty of people as well who will not take
the time to understand what you're dealing with and they're just not the
right people for you. Can't tell if you're in a relationship now (based on
video) but here's a little bit of advice. If you are, the sooner you
discuss it with that person the better. If that person is potentially the
right person for you it will only increase your bond. It will also relieve
a lot of stress - especially on dates. If the person is unwilling to be
with you or even take the time to learn what you're dealing with then
you've saved yourself a lot of wasted time.

Now, knowing when to discuss your condition when entering a new
relationship can be trickier. In the end it really comes down to two
things. 1. When you're comfortable and 2. Whether or not the person you're
with is the right one for you. They're either going to like/love and accept
you regardless of whether you tell them on the first date or later on.

I'm sure many will argue that bringing it up on a first date or second
might be too soon and there are some valid points to that. Some perceive
that as opening up too quickly and potentially scaring people off not
necessarily because they're grossed out or don't want to be with you but
because they might perceive that as opening up too quickly and trying to
rush into a serious relationship too soon.

In the end, there's no right answer, only what you feel is right.
Regardless of when you tell them or how you tell them if that person you're
with is the right person for you (either at that stage in your life as or
as a spouse) they will see past it.

Best of luck

You might know of a thing called flat d deodorizer which doesn't work as
well as the maker makes it out to be. However, it does prevent a residual
smell in one's underpants. Apparently, Crohn's is more common in the UK
than I thought and of course common in the North American continent.

I originally found your channel via this video. And then I watched your
other videos. And then I saw the FindMike campaign film and just sat
sobbing for about ten minutes. (In a good way... if that makes sense?)
I have Crohn's disease, and my bowel perforated, so I had to have ostomy
surgery (and make videos about it). So many conditions (whether it's a
physical illness or mental illness) are hardly ever talked about openly
because people are embarrassed or scared, or just don't understand.
I'm so glad you are doing what you're doing, and I'm proud to be doing what
I'm doing too. Because if it helps someone recognise symptoms, whether it's
in themselves or in others, it can save a life.
Keep fighting, you're doing great. <3 xTxx

Everything that you said hits home. I feel exactly the same way and mask it

2 years ago i was throwing up poo, id had guts ache for 2 weeks and it was
horrible. I googled it and then realized some thing was badly wrong. I went
to the hospital and told them the story and within 24 hours i had an
operation that saved my life. Yep running in the loo 6 times a day aint fun
so i know where you are coming from.

I know how you feel - especially getting intimate it scared me so much - I
wasn't until about one and a half years after diagnosis. You just have to
tell them if it's going to be an issue, which means making sure you're not
TMIing (too much information) and get to know them first. Absolutely feel
your pain though, every time I leave the house it really panics me, and
going anywhere further than my town absolutely terrifies me. Even if
something doesn't go wrong you're always scared that it might. I remember
breaking down once in a pharmacy because they hadn't got the antibiotics I
needed and I was so exhausted from trying about 7 others, the overwhelming
feeling is the worst. Though it makes it easier knowing other people go
through similar things.

2 questions: How would you recommend supporting someone with Crohns? Do you
think someone's mental health can affect the control they have over

Автор valeriodujmovic ( назад)
GINGER ROOT can cure all of the digestive problems ! Start the morning
with some warm water, half lemon squeezed in it, teaspoon of real honey,
cinnamon and some GINGER ROOT ! GINGER ROOT RULES !!! It will take a few
weeks for the symptoms to go away. Plus everything that ''torteinlunde'' is
saying down there.

watched your video about your crohn's and your worries about finding a
partner! My ex, and an ex who remains a great friend still, had crohn's!
All the same problems as you described! I just wanted to say please don't
worry, my ex and I just laughed about it and we worked fine together ;) you
are good looking and have great personality and presence - that is what
matters above anything else! Just be honest from the start, there are
plenty of people out there for you who understand and can except other
peoples issues. Keep up the great work you do :)

Very brave, i suffer with crohns disease, it took 1 year to diagnose
because i got told to go for a colonoscopy and that freaked me out and i
didnt go ahead with it until 1 year later i became so ill that i nearly
died because i didnt get treated for it i developed blood clots large ones
and they traveled to my lungs, then i had relevant tests for them to
diagnose me. Also whilst in hospital i had a ct scan done witch showed an
abcess which healed when i started treatment, im on steroids welldon

I've had crohns disease since I was 8 years old and I am now 16. I can
relate so much to everything you have talked about. I am homeschooled
because I was missing so much school.because I was always sick and in and
out of hospitals, and it is so hard to live with but it does get easier,
but tomorrow im going to get remicade again and was feeling down, but
knowing someone knows what im going through helps me feel a lot better so
thank you for posting this video

Thanks Salome. You will get there...acceptance can be so tough, it takes
time.Try and be kind to yourself, easier said than done i know! Look into
mindfulness..two of the key elements of this is acceptance and
self-compassion. You could really benefit from learning more about it. A
good starting place is Mindfulness For Beginners by Jon Kabbat Zinn :)

Thanks for your message Vikki. My diagnosis changed to IBS. It's great
about your sister, thanks for sharing such a positive message :) hope
you're doing ok too. I'm learning ways to manage my IBS. It's tough and i
recently had a bad flare up but i'll get there. Great to hear from you!

Автор Salome Halle ( назад)
Thanks so much for making this I have colitis and you have inspired me to
talk more about my fears....thanks for sharing makes such a difference to
hear others feel the same way...I feel like less of a freak....I often feel
like it is my fault I am sick...I must have done something wrong if I could
just figure out what I could make it right maybe....I must be in the
bargaining stage of grief....acceptance must be around the corner
now....hurry up acceptance I am ready for you...:)

Hey Jonny, I suffer from IBS which is no way near as extreme but my sister
has Crohns and things are improving all the time. She has been living with
it for about 20 years and in that time, it's remarkable how treatments have
come on. In recent years, her symptoms have settled down hugely. She hasn't
had a flare up for a couple of years. So stay positive, which is hard I
know. And as for relationships. She has a lovely chap and two beautiful
kids. Don't let it knock your confidence!

I was diagnosed with Crohns aged 13 and I find it so hard to accept, the
fact you have the guts to make a video like this explaining exactly what it
does and how it makes you feel! You are an inspiration :D
