My Story - Hope is on the Horizon

Good evening from Ohio!

My name is Kade, I'm 26 and making my way through life with my 'dark passenger' (<--Dexter:thumleft:).. ulcerative colitis. Since being diagnosed, I've had 4 bouts with fluctuating severity. Should note that I have made it a personal decision (although advised against) not to take medication for this ailment. I am currently averaging 1 bout every 2 years that seem to be correlated with stressful events occurring in my life at those times.

Most recently I have started to take CBD oil drops and have had some amazing results. While in remission, I am hoping to make someone's flare-up just a bit easier and help however I can through experience and support.

Thank you for allowing me to enter the community!
