Happy Mother’s Day to all you strong beautiful women who fight Inflammatory bowel disease everyday. Being a parent and fighting a chronic illness is never easy. We salute you. 💕
It’s a shame that places discriminate against people with conditions such as IBD. There was absolutely NO NEED for this young gentleman and his partner to be removed from the nightclub. Furthermore this guy was obviously so upset and understandably so! It really didn’t need to be handled that way. I wish more companies/business would EDUCATE their staff on invisible illnesses. HAVE SOME BLOODY COMPASSION. ... See more
'My 21-year-old son has suffered for many years with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. In January of this year after 8 days in hospital he was discharged with an ileostomy bag. As you can imagine this is a very distressing thing to have to come to terms with. Which is why this story is absolutely horrifying. Last night my son and his girlfriend went to Harvey's nightclub in Darlington. They realised that his bag may need changing; because he is new to changing his bag he does need his partner to help him. As he doesn't enough pocket space to carry the equipment required to change an ileostomy bag, his partner had all of the equipment needed to change his bag in her handbag. They fully understood it may seem unusual for a couple to enter a disabled toilet together however my son and his partner were in there less than a minute and entered using his radar key. This time was enough for my son's partner to help him empty his bag and ensure he didn't need a full change of bag. On leaving the toilet he was approached by the manager of Harvey's and told he shouldn't be using that toilet because he 'didn't look disabled'. At this point, my son showed her his ileostomy bag and explained his situation. He told her that he was new to this and explained the reason he was using his radar key to access the disabled toilet. He obviously expected an understanding of his situation however what he got was something else entirely. The manager called for the bouncers to remove him, which they did. By this point my son was in tears. His partner showed the door staff all of the equipment needed to change his bag and explained the situation to the bouncers and they immediately offered to let him and his partner back in declaring that they were appalled that they'd been asked to remove someone in that position. My son's partner went back inside simply to ask for the manager's name. My son couldn't bring himself to go back in. He was so upset and humiliated that he waited outside in the rain. This photo shows what my son showed them.' ... See more
