Hi! My name is Lyndsey and in 2012 my life was forever changed when I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Pan-Colitis. For the last 7 years I’ve had my ups and downs with this Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). In July 2019, after an almost 6 month flare up with no response to any medications, I had surgery to remove my colon and give me a temporary ileostomy. Since then I’ve had a few more surgeries, a little more weight loss, couple of meltdowns, and an overall new perspective on my life.
I started this blog, right before my first surgery, in hopes to share my experiences and life with my ulcerative colitis (UC) and help others going through similar situations know that they are not alone. I’ve always been a big advocate for IBD and since my surgery have been even more active advocating with my ileostomy.
I hope this blog can give others hope and inspiration in those times when you think all is lost.
Thank you so much for following along with my journey!
