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!
