My Health Journey

I was first Diagnosed with Colitis in 2018, just after my grandmother had past away.  I was going through a life changing and stressful time, so it make sense that I would flare up. I had mild symptoms for 6 months, and then it go really bad, and so I get rushed to emergency! They made an appointment for me to meet with a doctor, and he said that I should get a colonoscopy. It was very scary, but I got through it.  It was right after I woke up from the anesthesia that he told me that I had Ulcerative colitis. All we were told was to eat junk food and we were given a scary pamphlet that basically said that I would be in pain for the rest of my life, would get cancer, and never have kids. Turns out those things are not true! I did not just have to be on the "Junk food only" diet, and I also think I will be able to have kids! I am now finally in remission after many hospital visits, and many painful months! -Gutsy Girly
