J-pouch.net readers,

We wanted to welcome Jessica to our community. Below is an email we received from Jessica and like many of us, she has had many struggles CIMG2565with UC and she is starting her first surgery Sept 25th.    See the link to her website below.

Dear Mark,
My name is Jessica, and have had Severe UC for 5 1/2 years. Have been on and tried every med out there, and am facing the 3 step surgery here at the end of Sept. The first one is scheduled for Sept 25th. I am a sea of emotions, and have been soaking up information online. I came across J-Pouch Life, and am loving everything about the wbsite. I have recently started a blog on blogspot as a sort of diary for me and my husband to help us better see the progress from where I was to where I will be. I am very interested in blogging more broadly maybe through ya’ll if my story could help somebody else out there as so many stories on your website have helped me! Maybe you can take a look at my blog, and get back with me on how maybe I could do this. Here is the link. Thank-you so much for your considerstion!

Please visit Jessica at her blog http://jessicaronson.blogspot.com/

    Jessica~ My thoughts and prayers will be with you as you go into your first surgery. I completed my first on June 1st and my second on August 3rd. The road is rough but those who have suffered with UC know the pain; if we can handle that, we can pretty much handle anything. This surgery is truly life-saving and will give you back the freedom and energy that you so deserve. You will be amazed at all that you can do that you couldn’t do just months before. Have faith that it will be worth it in the end. Continue to be strong! Emily
