My name is a Jonz, a 40 year old college student in Sociology in the Hawaiian Islands. I have been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis by Dr. Grant Chen here in Honolulu, Hawaii who was from China but moved here to Hawaii to practice medicine. Ulcerative Colitis was actually something he learned in Shanghai so he was able to easily see the symptoms and know how to monitor it easier than my veteran general practitioner. What I am about to say that is quite unique about this situation is that UC is not only a major condition in my life, but a blessing in disguise which I will explain further. With UC, I entered a new chapter in my life and am ready to share that chapter.
