Hey! My name is Liesl and I'm a freshman at the University of Illinois. In January of 2011, I was diagnosed with a very severe steroid refractory ulcerative colitis. Since then, everything has been a roller coaster of medications, surgeries, and emotional struggles. This disease is the best and worst thing that has ever happened to me. :]
