*A little bit about me*
I am Victoria Marie a blogger, fundraiser and co-founder of the #GetYourBellyOut campaign who over the past few years has been on a whirlwind of a journey. 
Colitis and ME is my chance to talk openly and honestly about my illness and the turbulent journey I face in coming to terms with a life long incurable illness.

Follow my journey as I document the human side of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and how it has changed my life! I advocate to support those who have the illness, their families and loved ones whilst educating and integrating those who are fortunate to not be touched by illness. I hope you will all join me on my quest to make both Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease household names.

  1. Hey there :-), i got diagnosed with crohns disease around about when you got diagnosed with UC, i was 19, this May i will have had crohns for 10 years, and a lot of what you went through i can fully relate to. The problem with UC and CD is that unless you have a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy its hard to diagnose, so i spent a lot of months going back and forth from the doctors trying different things, eventually nothing worked so i asked to be referred to hospital, it was then where i found out i had CD. To be honest i was soo glad to find out what the hell it was, atleast then i can do my own research on the condition. I lost a lot of weight along with it a lot of confidence, its so hard on you mentally and physically. But like you said, if you have your friends and family around you they will always support you. Colitis and crohns is part of us, theres no escaping that, its better to accept it and do the best you can. It will bring you to your knees but the main thing is to persevere and keep your head up high. if you ever need to chat my twitter handle is @SofLilPowUddin. Peace out
