I've been in the advertising industry my whole life and with today's technology am able to work from home. My home office saved my life with the onset of UC. I'm one of the rarer one's who was just diagnosed this past summer at age 55. Although there are many blessings about being this age, the hardest part about getting UC at this late stage is that I'm a stubborn mule and refused to think I was sick or needed help, as you'll see from my story.
