Hi there I am 20 years old and am from Dubai. I've been diagnosed with UC about 6 months ago in 2013 so it all so new to me.. am a very out going person I love to go out and see things and try things no so much food anymore but its alright. I try to be positive about it and not overthink but sometimes I cant help being down and sad.. the idea that I am sick and there is no cure for it freaks me out.
