Hi I'm Amanda. I'm a 22 year old college senior and was diagnosed with severe ulcerative proctitis 2 months ago. I was given this diagnosis after a colonoscopy and a biopsy from different spots of my large intestine. I'm sure my symptoms are nothing in comparison to someone with severe ulcerative colitis, but I have to say this disease was taking control of my life for a while and there are still many times where I feel like that today. I have had a TERRIBLE experience with my doctors and have felt like they weren't there for me. I feel very alone in this situation and have no idea what steps to take to get healthy. That's why I'm here.
