All right...here we go...my first official post on my new blog. (taking a deep breath)
Welcome to everyone that finds their way here! My main goal with this blog is to bring awareness to Crohn's, Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and anything in between. I have come across many people that aren't familiar with what IBS is and I take pride in being able to educate them so we have one less ignorant person in the world. IBS can affect anyone at anytime - from babies to the elderly. There is no rhyme or reason for why your body just begins to attack itself and the worst part is that there is no cure. This is what is called an auto-immune disease and I'm sure many of you are familiar with other ones: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Lupus, even Multiple Sclerosis. So, in order for the cure to show up we have to have awareness. And for awareness we have (drumroll, please): this wonderful blog!!
I encourage anyone who is suffering from IBS to talk and/or vent about their issues. Odds are, if I haven't been through it myself then maybe one of my followers has. There is nothing better than having a shoulder to cry on especially if the person attached to that shoulder has the same problems. If you happen to know someone with IBS please direct them here and take some time to educate yourself about what your friends or loved ones are going through.
Aside from that, I am also here to talk about writing, books, and any other interesting things that happen in my life. I am currently working on the great American novel (aren't we all my dear writer friends?).
And with that I bid you adieu. (waving like the Queen from the balcony of her castle)
I wish you all good health and wonderful days of writing! (or feel free to substitute your hobby for writing)
p.s. Thank you for my three followers!!
