I was diagnosed in December 2012 with ulcerative colitis (UC) at the age of 33. I spent 30 days in the hospital during May and June 2013. Since then, I have made it my mission to talk to everyone (and anyone who will listen) about UC. I am an elementary reading teacher by day, and a wife and mommy of two beautiful children by night.
After multiple failed attempts to get the disease under control with medication, I had my colon completely removed in 2015 and three years later to make my ileostomy permanent. My blog is called Toilet Paper Princess: tales of an ulcerative colitis warrior. This is my journey!
