Dear readers, just wrote an article that provides tips for dealing with bathroom anxiety when you have Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects your digestive tract. Bathroom anxiety is a common issue for people with Crohn’s disease, as they may experience frequent and urgent bowel movements, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and other symptoms that make it difficult to find a suitable restroom when needed.

Tips include:

  1. Planning ahead by locating nearby restrooms using apps like Bathroom Scout, “which can help you find more than 2.7 million bathrooms and restrooms worldwide, including public toilets as well as restrooms in restaurants and other facilities”.
  2. Carrying a kit with essentials such as toilet paper, wipes, hand sanitizer, medication, change of clothes, etc.
  3. Practicing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or listening to music to calm your nerves and reduce stress.
  4. Seeking professional help from a therapist or counselor if your anxiety is severe or interfering with your daily life.

We are proud to contribute with the Toilet Scout!
