I have Ulcerative Colitis

Most people who will read my blog will probably already know that I have Ulcerative Colitis, but I couldn’t really think of a better title for my first post about it.

The arrival of this new section on my site comes along with a WordPress upgrade, I’m using a basic theme for now but aim to use my skills to develop a nicer bespoke theme. I have a feeling that coming back to WordPress will make me enthusiastic about blogging again.  The techy side of my site is all going to still be there, but this new section will have a complete focus on IBD and Ulcerative Colitis.

As I haven’t posted anything on here in a loooong time, I thought I’d give a run-down of what I’ve been up to. Enjoy!
