hey Friends - I am about to reveal my anonymity here, but, whatever..... below is a link to a piece I wrote about my UC that is published in today's new york times. my hope is that this piece will raise visibility about UC and IBD in general. please circulate the story to as many people as you know so that together we can leverage this opportunity to bring IBD a bit more into the public sphere and make people less afraid to talk about it. just want to share in case any of you have an ostomy due to IBD. hopefully you'll enjoy my piece. -Loren
