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

Hello and welcome back to my blog! I am just wondering if anyone has a recommended app that they use to keep track of your IBD? I used to use a great app, but unfortunately, it got taken off the app store. I like to be able to journal my food because it can be helpful to look back on what I ate on any given day, and to make sure that I am eating a balanced meal. I like to also track my weight, Hydration, exercise, and bowel movements, as well as medication and notes that doctors have given me. If you have any suggestions or questions feel free to leave them in the comment section! Thanks for reading -Gutsy girly
