I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis almost 20 years ago. Resulted in me having a liver transplant in 2013. In 2015, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and high grade dysplasia. I ended up with a permanent ileostomy. I have a hard time dealing with depression and anxiety, but, I do what I can. Therapy, etc.. humor and music is probably what has kept me sane through it all.

The non medical side of me is into movies and music. I like stand up comedy. I have a sarcastic and dark sense of humor. I'm an introvert, so I'm glad I found this site. It's a lot easier to talk about some of these issues with people who know. Or, at least have some idea what the hell I'm talking about.
