This is my story:

I was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) at the age of 7 when I got severely ill and was taken to hospital as I was loosing consciousness. The doctor told my parents that if 10 was dead I was a 9 when they brought me in!

I am now at the end of the line in term of medication and have not been in remission for over 6 years but I have never prioritised my health and happiness more in my entire life and I am so much better for it!

IBD can be a long hard battle but it’s our struggles that force us to grow and allows us to appreciate all the good things in life 🌱🌼
