Bio: Diagnosed with Chron's disease in March 2013, after a long 7 years of suffering and mis-diagnosis | Ileostomy - 24/05/2013 | Although times can sometimes be difficult, at the end of the day I a not ashamed of my disease (although it often seems unacceptable to talk about it) and am coming to terms with the fact that Crohn's is now a part of me that has made me who i am today. Here, I am hoping to share my story, along with everyday happenings and to both gain support myself but also to offer to others living with IBD (crohns or colitis) or any other chronic illnesses. Aside from my health issues, I enjoy reading, music, English literature, History, Sleep, food (when it agrees with me!) and meeting new people. In the future I would love to travel and explore new places and continue to help raise awareness of chronic illnesses.
