About

We all come with a little extra baggage.

Mine happens to be a bit more literal. This is my life documented as I struggle with Ulcerative Colitis, an ileostomy and a JPouch. I’m going to be as genuine and authentic as possible, without holding back any details. I believe in the power of sharing our stories ┬áin an effort to build compassion, understanding and empathy.

  2. Nice BLOG! Being almost one year post op, I bet you finally have all your energy back. I’m very happy for you! I struggled with UC and had an ileostomy for 11 years so I know the challenges you are facing and will continue to work through.

    I’m an advocate for an alternative surgery that has had a very positive impact on my life (bag free for 2 years now)! I highly encourage you to email me for more information, if interested.
