I spend a lot of time on the toilet. It's the nature of colitis. When I leave the house I make sure to know the location of the closest bathroom. It's a necessity. Sometimes I won't leave the house because I am on the toilet more than I am off. I never give a confirmation for plans with my friends, I just tell them maybe.
I heard about World Toilet Day from my friend Stacie over at Simply Stacie. It's a real day! When she told me about it I thought, well that special day is right up my alley!
World Toilet Day is an annual event celebrated on November 19th. It was started to bring attention to the fact that 2.5 billion people do not have access to toilets or proper sanitation. I can't imagine what that is like. I don't think I would survive my illness without a proper bathroom as well as laundry facilities. I had no idea that so many people live without what you and I take for granted.
