I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2010 at the age of 21 years old. I have been managing my disease with diet and functional medicine since 2011. I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Public Health from Eastern Kentucky University, and a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Kentucky. I plan on pursing a graduate degree in Primary Care Nurse Practitioner and practicing as an integrative medicine family nurse practitioner specializing in digestive disorders.
I am 35 years old, a female and there’s just a ton of swelling throughout my whole body. It is mostly localized in my uterus (my husband and I have figured out that much) and have ruled out the most normal (I say normal, because for me right now it would feel normal to have the whatever-thing that is wrong with me to actually have a name, like ulcerative colitis or chron’s. (Both of which are horrible auto-immune diseases that I am not trying to make light of.) I have this swelling that is always present, but tends not to swell AS much when I eat well; whole, balanced meals. Perhaps when our insurance situation is better we can have more access to doctors that can actually look at what is going on.
