    We normally go off season but will be going Christmas week. What do you do if there is a line for the bathroom? Can I go to first aid and use their restroom? I have a "I can't wait" card from the Crohn's foundation. How do you cope. It doesn't happen very often but as fellow suffers know when it happens you can't wait!

    I don't have Crohn's but my mother does. She carries around an exta pair of undergarments and shorts/pants where ever she goes just in case. She's also dealt with Crohn's for so long that she kind of knows what foods will trigger it so she can avoid them. Anything super greasy for example.

    I've never heard of an I can't wait card. How do you get one? I'm sure it would be very handy for my mom!

    It comes on the back of your CCFA (Crohn's and Colitis Foundation) membership card. I have used it a couple of times in places that don't have "public" restrooms. I also try to avoid the fat since it bothers me too! Sorry you mom has it too, it stinks.
