Tell us 3 things that are true about you, your condition, or your Health Activism. Tell us 1 lie. Will we be able to tell the difference?
1. I suffered terribly with Erythema Nodosum when I first became symptomatic for Crohn’s Disease. If it wasn’t for a very smart second year junior doctor spotting it on my second admission, I could have gone many more months being undiagnosed. Thank goodness for her!
2. The end of this month sees the launch of my local CCUK (Crohn’s and Colitis UK) support group. I am co-ordinator. I am utterly nervous.
3. I worry all the time about the surgery I will no doubt end up having to remove my colon. I am very attached to it and can not even fathom how different my life with be without it.
4. I regularly forget to take my medication. Uh oh.
