Digestive Disease Week #DDW14

This weekend I have the honor of not only attending one of the biggest digestive health events in the world, but participating a little bit as well.

For so many years, I couldn’t understand why I was dealt such a rough hand. I never understood why I had to suffer so much when I did everything I was “supposed” to do. I hated everything that my illness did to my family too.

But this coming weekend is my chance to share my feelings about a lot of things related to inflammatory bowel disease. This is my chance to help those millions of patients suffering who either can’t talk about their situation yet or don’t have the means to truly be heard. This weekend is all about goodness and helping others. It feels so amazing to be a part of something like this with people who have helped me not only grow as an advocate but as a person as well.
