Hey guys! Thought it would be a great time to re-introduce myself, as I’m happy to welcome lots of new followers! My name is Natalie, I’m a wife to Bobby, mom to Reid and a patient advocate/blogger at Lights, Camera, Crohn’s.
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in July 2005, two months after college graduation, at the age of 21. I spent the first 10 years of my battle suffering in silence, as I was in the public eye working in TV and didn’t want anyone to look at me differently for my chronic disease.
When I left the news desk in 2014, I decided to start sharing my patient journey and have never looked back! I aim to be a voice of hope and inspiration to the millions of people who take on IBD on a daily basis. I share fresh content on my blog every Monday morning. Have a topic or story idea you want discussed, let me know! We’re all in this together. You are never alone in your fears, struggles or concerns. 💜👊🏻
