I am in the exact same boat as you, well sort of. I am 24 and I never had any symptoms (or previous health problems), except blood in my stool and after a trip to the Emergency room and eventually a colonoscopy from a GI specialist turns out that I have UC.
This is all so new to me and I have done my fair share of crying as well and there is absolutely no shame in that! Sometimes, that's our only way we can react. I mean, what else can we do?
I was diagnosed with the worst case of UC, pancolitis and that puts me at the greatest risk for co-rectal cancer. Oh joy.
We just have to keep our heads up and pray that a cure is coming. We'll have our day.
