About Alice

Hi, I'm Alice and I'm a paediatric sister. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of nine after many months of being unwell. I used to ask why this was happening to me and tell my parents I wanted to be ‘normal’ like my friends. At 21, I underwent colectomy surgery and later had a proctectomy, which made my stoma permanent. When I was recovering from surgery, I wrote a blog for those that were going through the same. You can find this on my Instagram: @semicolon563
