RANT OF THE DAY!!!!!!!
Was told by a Canadian Disabilities group that DIVI is not considered a disease because it doesn't impact your quality of life...Yet Crohn's, Colitis and IBS are on the list.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!
This stupid thing has taken on a life of it's own and controls a huge part of my life. I wish each person (who has the job of deciding what is or isn't considered a disease) would have to go through what we have to when we have a flare up before being able to decide this. Let them have to cry while sitting on the toilet, let them have abdominal cramps so bad they'd wish it was all hauled out, Let then end up in the hospital on a drip because they can't eat and let them see how it affects their social/private lives when they're too sick to do anything with family and friends. Considering how much the symptoms of these overlap I can't see how one could be considered a "Disease" while the other is only considered a "Condition".
Definitions really need to be revised and updated
