I will turn 19 on May 1. I’ve had UC since I was 7. I just finishing my first yr at EMU in Harrisonburg Va. I will be a Jr next year. I’m studying Sociology and Criminal Justice. Ive had a hard time with this disease. I have a chronic abdominal pain syndrome that’s from the UC and was on Remicade for 5 yrs and became non responsive to it. I’m now on Entyvio and get infusions at UVA children’s hospital every 4 weeks,. Most people who know me know that I don’t feel good a lot of times, but they understand what I’m going through. I love to draw and read. I have to watch every thing I eat. It’s pretty much garanteed I will have a lot of pain after I eat, so that’s a big part of my life. Pain and feeling terrible. But I go to school everyday in pain or not. I want to live a normal happy life.
