    CBS Cares Colonoscopy Sweepstakes

    I just saw a commercial for this on TV and I figured it must be some kind of joke... but alas, it isn't. I have Crohn's, so on occasion I have had to have colonoscopies done... and I certainly never felt like I won a friggin sweepstakes when they happened I can tell you that. I mean, I can see where they're going with this, but it's still ridiculous. what's the next prize, a round of chemo?

    Not everyone offering a free colonoscopy is a health professional. That's a lesson kids need to be told early in life.

    I actually have Crohn's to, so I've had it done as well and...

    ... you have to spend a day beforehand drinking the most god awful liquid laxative to clear your bowels. It's honestly a gag reflexing liquid that tastes about what I would imagine motor oil tasting like. THAT is not free. Though the procedure isn't what I call "fun", they knock you out and you actually end up not feeling a thing.

    yeah, i had to drink this citrus tasting stuff and within an hour i was wishing for a regular crohn's flare-up rather than the experience i was having. i actually woke up halfway through my first scope. i saw the monitor on the wall. the doctor was navigating through my colon like it was the most disgusting first person shooter i had ever seen. yup.
