So, the video will do most of the explaining for me, but I have suffered from Ulcerative Colitis, a form of Irritable Bowel Disease, for about five years now. It has, unwillingly, become a huge part of my life and has affected me in more ways than I could count.
IBD Awareness Week is December 1st-7th, which is why making this video was so important to me, because it's time for people to see what invisible illnesses look like. We need to spread awareness of autoimmune diseases, in hopes that one day we can find a cure. It's time to be #IBDvisible.
I know I am not alone in my fight, so I hope this video reaches others who are suffering in a similar way and reminds them that they have support.
