“If you wish to upset the law that all crows are black … it is enough if you prove one single crow to be white.”
– William James, MD (1842-1910)
So why am I quoting this little ditty? Well, unfortunately there are still some minds out there that insist that Crohns disease is incurable. Here I stand as the White Crow, an ex-sufferer of 40 years of Crohn’s, as the example that it IS curable. I’m sure there are now many more who have this understanding.
Even an Irritable Bowel Disease specialist that I had the pleasure of meeting a couple of weeks ago, agrees that the way gastrointestinal disorders are described could change. Yey to the change! After all, isn’t that what happens on this planet! 🙂
