Meet a Girl with Guts- Blair Deacon

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Hey, my name is Blair Deacon. I am 33 years old and I live in Cleveland Tennessee. Um, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at about age 16 and um, after years of Prednisone, MP6, Remicade treatments um, I just didn't respond to anything. And, at age 30 the doctor removed my colon and my rectum and uh, I had j-pouch surgery. So after about a year and a half of that um, my j-pouch actually got ruptured when the doctor went in and tried to fix a stricture so they had to do the surgery all over again and since that point nothing has ever really worked the same. Every one to two months I go in and have a dilation done. Um, just to kind of stretch out the strictures and stuff that have been developing so in about two weeks I go to meet with the doctor to talk about a permanent ileostomy and that's something that's scary and exciting at the same time. Um, and that's really why I decided to make this video for Girls With Guts is all of you have really been an inspiration. Um, especially Karis Her story, I mean it kinda seems like a lot of what I kinda went through. And uh, but al of you girls are such a total inspiration and I really appreciate that a group like you re out there. I've never met anybody under the age of 50 who's ever had and ileostomy or colostomy bag um, or ever even had my condition. And while it's great to have the support of friends and a network like that, it's always just great to make a connection with somebody. Uh, and just to know that you're not alone and that you're not goin through it alone. So um, but I just wanted to thank you all. If there's ever anything I can do down here, down in the South, I would be happy, um, to help in any way possible. And again just thank you for all the work that you do you are an inspiration to people. They do connect with you. They do watch your videos, your blogs, your posts and um, I just hope you al have very, very happy holidays. Take care. Bye!
