Today is the first day of Crohns/Colitis Awareness Week! Please, please, please take the time to read my story if you haven’t already. I am trying so incredibly hard to show the world how devastating these diseases can be. It isn’t just take medicine and go about your merry way. The few news segments I have seen make me want to cry because they are so inaccurate. This story is long but also only 10percent of what I have been through. Very difficult to put 12 years of hell into words. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read what I kept in for 12 long years.
