I was diagnosed 3 years ago and it has been so wonderful to find this podcast. The support I feel when listening is something I have not been able to find anywhere else. Thank you so much for the awareness that you bring to the world, but also for the advice and love to send out there to your listeners. As I listen, I often think “Wow! They have gone through so much. If they can do it and stay positive, so can I!” Thank you for being a beacon of hope!
Thank you for speaking out about IBD! It is so nice to hear from others with these difficult diseases. It is nice not to feel so alone! Keep up the great work!
so excited for this podcast
I am so excited for this podcast! I've listened to the first couple episodes and love it. I was diagnosed with colitis four years ago and have been dying to hear from other people who are going through the same thing! Thanks for being brave and putting your story out there for others to hear. It means a lot.
