The journey that starts with guts ache can lead you to embark on new journeys and find out new things.
Ulcerative colitis changed my life, and I venture many people who read this blog will feel the same. How it changes you is largely (not entirely) up to you?
I wonder if you don't acknowledge your journey, if you have not traveled?
On my particular journey I found a lot of pain and anguish, and I was taken to some frightening places; but there was more.
In the very nadir of fear I stumbled on something that might have helped me earlier if I had only known. It certainly helped me as I faced the knife.
Anyway- my journey continues and this is somewhere it took me. . .
