This site is a compilation of my personal journey with inflammatory bowel disease. I was diagnosed in January of 2017 with ulcerative colitis (mild proctitis). By May 2017, it was confirmed that my disease had spread along the entire left side to include up to half of the transverse colon. My most recent diagnosis is severe extensive pancolitis.
Since diagnosis, I have become determined to find and aid in correcting whatever it is that I have done to offend my immune system and cause such high levels of inflammation in my body. This website is a combination of blogging, recipes, and resources I’ve accumulated along my way.
If you’d like to read more about my journey, I have documented what I consider to be the highlights below. I hope you enjoy reading.

- Five Years of Remission (2017-2022)

Current Status: Clinical Remission as of 10/5/17. My current IBD regimen includes mesalamine, diet, vitamins, and exercise.
