I am a college student from Oklahoma, and I was diagnosed with UC my junior year of high school. It took six months of bloody stool and racing to the bathroom before I could convince my mother that something was wrong--she said it was just "stress", and that it would pass. These days, there's a beautiful facility that takes care of my medicine, at no cost. My friends are incredibly supportive, and I am determined to not let Colitis control my life. It's so wonderful to discover other people going through the same thing, reading their stories and understanding. It's like being among family.
