About

I am one of the hundreds of thousands of people in the US with Ulcerative Colitis.  I’m an otherwise healthy 26 year old female.  I work for a consulting firm, I practice and teach yoga.  I was diagnosed with UC at age 25 after a lifetime track record of no GI issues.  The nature of this disease tends to keep oral discussion to a minimum and I, like many, played it down to the best of my abilities.  In September of 2011, I was confronted with a very serious flare that landed me in the hospital for 30 days.  I could no longer pretend that my UC didn’t exist; for the first time I was forced to talk about it.  With everyone.  And there is still much to talk about.  The premise of this blog is simple:  it is a collection of my thoughts and experiences related to my life and this disease.

      I think if you click “Follow”. it should be somewhere, maybe the upper left hand corner in the top bar?
