Dating and intimacy present unique challenges for those with ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and other conditions that entail long periods spent in the bathroom.

While you are on The Mighty site you might want to check out my other article, Why Ulcerative Colitis is Not Just a Bathroom Disease. So-called bathroom diseases tend to be a source of shame.
