Hi, my name is AimeeCheeks!
I’m new to Scope! I have had IBD or Inflammatory Bowel Disease since I was a toddler. I’m now 49 so this has been a very long time. A long time to adjust to being ill. A long time to understand what is going on with my body. A long time to become an expert on my illness. I just recently was diagnosed with another disease- Ankylosing Spondylitis. I’m scared ******** for the first time in my life. This disease is new and has not caused nearly the pain and horror that I have experienced with IBD. So why am I such a wimp? I’m guessing being in that comfortable space of familiarity has been invaded. I’m here to help people with IBD related issues and to find help with Ankylosing Spondylitis.
