For every person that complains about these videos, THIS is what this trend is really all about. 

There are REAL people out there with these diseases and more people need to be aware. 

Spread the word about ALS and all other diseases that you don’t feel get enough air time. Instead of focusing on people “clogging” our news feed(does that sound ridiculous to anyone else?). Let us all find a cure so our social media won’t have to have a conscience or something….

My (F25) boyfriend (M34) has Crohn's disease, which has left him with an irreversible ileostomy bag. Anyone with similar experience? • /r/sex —›

With all the ALS challenge videos my family wants to do a Crohn’s awareness challenge.

Here are some our our ideas for people to feel what it is like to have Crohn’s/Colitis. 

  • Getting hit in the stomach with a bat
  • Sit for hours in a bathroom
  • Find the closest bathroom while in a public place
  • Do 200 crunches 
  • Eat 6 tablespoons of hot sauce

Obviously, this is a humorous post but we really should have some sort of challenge…
