My fiance, Connor and I are going to be taking part in the 5K Walk It in Edinburgh for Crohns and Colitis UK. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2013 and it has changed my life. I want to help raise awareness for Inflammatory Bowel Disease as it is something I wish was more openly spoken about. When I was diagnosed, I had no idea what it was and was terrified. It is not a nice thing to live with but the support that I have gained from the Crohns and Colitis UK charity has been incredibly helpful.
Ulcerative Colitis is a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. There are two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, those being Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Crohns Disease can affect the digestive tract from the mouth to the rectum whereas with Ulcerative colitis, it it usually the colon that is inflamed. Although the symptoms are very much physical, a lot of people forget (including doctors) about how this can affect your emotional and mental well-being. With IBD, no one can see what is going on with you as it is all happening inside your body. This is what makes it so difficult for people to understand just how ill you can be as when you have IBD, mostly you don’t look ill.
My aim is to help to raise money and awareness to help others newly diagnosed or living with IBD.“This could help pay for 2,000 people to get the information they need about Inflammatory Bowel Disease.”JOIN US as we WALK IT together; standing strong and raising vital funds for the fight against Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
