Pearl Jam Guitarist Goes Public with Crohn’s

I have so much respect for this guy for coming out about his disease. Crohn’s can be such an embarrassing topic, it’s hard to be open about just how sick you can be. I’m glad to see someone in the public eye speaking out about the disease. You can damn well bet that if I’m ever famous in any way, I’ll be more than open about my Crohn’s, because I know only too well the shame and pain and feeling of being alone that such a disease can bring.
