The outside world just doesn’t get it sometimes. Even when close family and friends are sympathetic, they can’t completely comprehend our journey. Since our daughter’s Crohn’s diagnosis, I have been journaling how I spend my time. I want to share with my friends why I haven't been available, but don't want it to sound like a sob story as I'm not trying to solicit sympathy. I know that parents in similar situations are the only ones with real insight into this way of life.
