Today I think I am making the decision to join the local TeamChallenge Crohn’s and Colitis group here in the Bay Area, California. There are hundreds(I think) groups like this. You can listen to the short audio clip that I made on my drive home from the meet-up, which actually ended up being a 4 mile walk for me.(Probably more exercise than I have had the past two weeks combined…)
I know in the past I have been hardcore anti-anything even remotely associated with the drug companies which CCFA most definitely is, but I am going back on that thinking for one major reason. I explain why in the audio clip that you can listen to from the link below.
Joining the CCFA Team Challenge for Crohns and Colitis – The Audio File
So I like UC’ers. That’s been going on since 2009 I’d say.
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.

Remember while using the site that:
UC symptoms and flare ups don’t last forever and no two people are the same.
You cool with that? good!
