32-year-old Krystal Miller has a problem that many people in the world face, but she’s one of the few coming forward with her amazing story. She’s not let the disease she has define her life. She was diagnosed with Chron’s disease when she was only 15-years-old. Because of this, her intestines and stomach were extremely infected. She also suffered from Diarrhea and extreme pain.
Krystal suffered major fatigue, and always afraid she’d have an “accident” while out in public. It got to the point where she ran to the bathroom 6 times every hour. “When I first got diagnosed, I was really uncomfortable. If someone went to the bathroom after me i wanted to cry because I was so embarrassed”. Krystal began to cut herself off from the world…
A large part of her intestines was removed when she was only 22, and she was given an “artificial exit.” All of her bowel movements go out the side of a bag which is attached to her side. Due to this Chron’s Disease, She began calling herself “Bagladymama.”
“No one sees the that we deal with everyday. We’re allowed to be angry! It’s not always easy, but that’s okay. We can still be sexy. There will be bad days. But those are the times when we have to get back up and keep going. Because the good days are worth it. We’re still sexy, even without a “backdoor.” Said Krystal.
