Dec 1 – 7, 2018: I’m late to the party (life happens), but I want to welcome new patients, veteran patients, and their loved-ones to #IBDAwarenessWeek.
Note: IBD Awareness Week is primarily promoted in the US and UK. In Canada, we have Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Month in November.
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Diseases back in 2008 – over a decade ago! My illness has taken me for wild ups and downs, and I’ve been able to connect with other people who have shared a similar story.
P..S. My full story can be read here.
If you have IBD, know that you aren’t alone. It may often feel like an upward battle, and you may begin to lose hope, but know that with the help of your healthcare team and the IBD Community, you will be well supported and in good hands.
If you’re interested in catching up with IBD Awareness Week (and the special chats, events, and live streams happening this week), I suggest following the #IBDAwarenessWeek hashtag on social media.
