So you have been diagnosed with colitis or have suffered with this debilitating disease for a period of time. I was diagnosed in 1994 and suffered several relapses until the big one in 2004. I underwent surgery and now have a j pouch. During these ten years, I had access to information from doctors and consultants yet this was all it was, information. To really make a difference I wanted more than information. I needed and wanted knowledge. Real, practical knowledge of living with colitis from those that have experienced it. Knowledge that can really make a positive difference. Often, it is the little piece of someone else's knowledge that can really make a big difference in defending yourself against colitis symptoms. Unfortunately, this knowledge was and still is very difficult to source because there is such a dearth of it available. And when it is available, has the author actually experienced exactly what they are writing or commenting about? Are they proven, are they an expert? That is until now. What you have at The Colitis Experience is someone who has been through it all, remissions, relapses right through surgery. Yes, you can get a lot of information from the internet, but how much real life practical knowledge is available to make your daily experiences of living with colitis easier? I now provide that knowledge you want in one very convenient place.
