About Usayd

Hi, I am Usayd.  I live in Houston, Texas. I love playing sports and travelling. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2018. Thanks to ulcerative colitis, my early 20s have been a humbling experience. Days where I’ve had 20 bowel movements, times when I found nothing but blood in my stool, and worst of all, embarrassing mishaps. There have been times where I wanted to just give up and throw in the towel, but you have to fight through and tell yourself, you will not let your life be a s**t show.
