PSC AWARENESS WEEK!!!

This is PSC awareness week and it’s where members of the PSC support group share ┬ástories, and spread the word about how important this illness needs to get funded. PSC stands for┬áprimary sclerosing cholangitis and it’s a chronic disease that damages the bile ducts, and scars the liver. Back in November of last year I noticed some weird stomach pains, and it felt really bad and horrible. Then in January I was diagnosed with this disease. It’s a struggle sometimes.

My symptoms are fatigue, random stomach pains, forgetfulness, and itchiness. I have to remember that PSC doesn’t have me and one of our slogans is F**** PSC! It can’t have me and I know I’m meant to do great things, but may have to struggle a little. It is an invisible disease but we occasionally feel pain.

To find out more information please check out http://www.pscaware.org and http://www.pscpartners.org. It needs to go viral in terms of the disease getting funded and researched. The awareness for PSC began yesterday and ends on the 27th.
