CROHN'S POEMS

THE SUPPORT GROUP

I always fear I'll be the only one there
But, no
they 're there
Some couples
dealing with one spouses illness
So caring
Some singles
We laugh
at problems like
"When do you tell a date you have IBD?"
and other shared dilemmas
"Where is the bathroom?"
"What can I eat?'
"Will my medicine kill me?"
"Will it drive my boyfriend away?'

They dare to be vulnerable
but what I go home with is
their strength
