My name is Jacklyn. I’m learning to live with ulcerative colitis. I was diagnosed on April 17th, 2013 with mild UC, and April 2014 it turned severe and I was hospitalized. I’m currently on remicade infusions to get to remission,
and I’m almost there. I’m there! At least as close as I’m going to get.
This blog started as my outlet for accepting and embracing my disease, and has turned into offering a little bit of hope to anyone else out there living with a chronic illness. It’s my reminder that everyone needs a little hope to cling to, and I hope to bring a little more of it to the world.
Aside from having ulcerative colitis, I practice yoga, love on my corgi-mix dogchild, love on my boyfriend, enjoy time with my family, read as many books as I can dive into, craft with my crazy girlfriends, get outside and enjoy the beauty of the world as much as possible, and smile and laugh as often as I can. I also am an avid list maker, wish maker, prayer requester and journal writer. I believe that God is good and He has a plan for me, I’m just trying to do my best to hear and act on it.
