What's a passion you found after IBD?

September 26, 2022 in IBD

I found out I loved painting only after I was diagnosed because I was looking for a hobby that was more accessible to me than running! I don't have as much time to paint but whenever I do, it's still just as enjoyable as the first painting I ever did.

    This is such a great question. I found a passion for advocacy because of IBD.

    It took a while after diagnosis, but I became connected with others who had IBD and learned a lot about advocating for accessibility and necessary accommodations. This has led to a broader passion for making my voice heard, reaching out to elected officials, and fighting for underdogs everywhere.
