I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Coltis when I was 4-years-old and had my first surgery at 6. It's not been 20 years since I was diagnosed and the road hasn't been easy. Its included many surgeries, including a transplant 6 years ago. While my family was an amazing support system, there weren't group and forums like there are now so I felt alone in my struggle. Recently, I decided to start blogging about it. I love feed back and wanted to share with others in the same IBD, Crohn's, and Colitis community.
