  • I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in December 2012. After struggling with C-Diff infections for the next year, my doctors decided my entire colon had to be removed. I lived with an ileostomy for about 6 months but I'm now reconnected. I was on medical leave for an entire year but I'm finally ready to be a student again. I had a pretty sever case of colitis, but I have a pretty thorough knowledge of treatments covering the whole spectrum of IBD. Best advice: look at the silver linings. I'm a huge film fan, and for the past 6 months, I've probably watched like 150 movies.
