Re: The Worst You've Ever Been Sick
A little over three years ago I developed what my doctors called the most violent case of ulcerative colitis any of them had ever seen. I had to drop out of school just over a week and a half into the semester and missed the entire year. My body didn't respond to any of the medications, so I spent eight months either in bed, on my couch, in the bathroom or in a doctor's office. It was basically a flare-up that lasted from September through April without any relief. I lost 45 pounds, needed two blood transfusions and ultimately two surgeries to "cure" me, the first of which was the removal of my large intestine.
