Hi all. I want to publicly write a huge thankyou to the bravery of Mr Shinzo Abe, former prime minister of Japan for having the massive courage to stand up in a country where its better to save face no matter what, rather then admit weakness - and announce that he suffers severe Ulcerative Colitis.

The News Story of interest can be found on Australia's news.com, but I expect it will appear in many international tabloids.

Another thread earlier was discussing if you do/do not hide your UC from those around you. I answered "no" because the more people who know of UC the better as it will help break down the taboo of the subject and help others with UC. People worry less when they understand more.
