World IBD Day: Living with Ulcerative Colitis


Today is World IBD day. This is a day to raise awareness of two chronic conditions under the bracket Inflammatory Bowel Disease; Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. As you may know, I have Ulcerative Colitis and was diagnosed in May 2013. I take lots of medications daily to help control the symptoms and have had many hospital admissions. When I was diagnosed, I had never heard of ulcerative colitis which is why I think it is so important to raise awareness because there could be people suffering in silence. I hope that this will help anyone who feels that they are alone.

I want to share a couple of blog posts that I wrote previously about living with IBD with you today and I hope it will give you some perspective on what it is like to live with a chronic illness. I would greatly appreciate it if you took the time to read them.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I will list some helpful websites below in which you can learn more about inflammatory bowel disease.
