What are some ways you relieve your boredom while relieving yourself?

Let’s face it, living with IBD means we’ve all become a little too familiar with the porcelain throne. But hey, why not make the most of it?
Do you play a round of "toilet Tetris" on your phone? Maybe you dive into a good book or binge-watch a show. Perhaps you’re crafting the next great novel in your head.
Whatever your bathroom boredom busters are, we want to hear them! Share your best tips for making those loo breaks a little less monotonous.

  1. I keep a book near my toilet so I always have one to read during my interlude with a flareup.

    1. love that! Having something to read while dealing with a flare up is such a smart idea. Do you have a favorite type of book to have on hand? -- Warmly, Christine (Team Member)

  2. If I can concentrate, I read scary stories or do crossword puzzles.

    1. those both sound like good ways to relieve some boredom (if you can concentrate)! -- Warmly, Christine (Team Member)

    2. Hi . Ahhh! So, do the scary stories take your mind off of the scary story that can be IBD? Best, Richard (Team Member)
