Dear Newly Diagnosed Patient
March 24, 2018
Dear newly diagnosed ulcerative colitis (UC) patient,
Hey, nice to meet you. I’m Jackie, and I’ll be your UC spirit guide for the start of your journey. As a veteran patient myself, I have a few nuggets of information that I’d like to share with you because you’re probably feeling pretty overwhelmed right now.
I remember what that was like when I was first diagnosed. I didn’t know anyone with UC, and I didn’t know anything about the condition. I just knew I was miserable, I was in pain, and it felt like that pain would never stop. Well, I’ve got good news: It can and does stop. While there will inevitably be ups and downs overtime, don’t worry — we’re going to walk through this together.
