So, if you haven't heard of team challenge, it's a running, triathalon, and cycling team that helps raise money for CCFA. This past summer for me has been the summer from hell, I had my colon removed and got my J pouch going about 2 weeks ago. before this past summer I hadn't talked much to anyone about having UC and anything I really had going on with my health.
I started to speak up and it's made a huge difference, I recently signed up for the Long Island Team challenge team and just being at the meeting alone made a difference. There were a lot of people there who actually understood and could relate with everything.
