Eccentric blogger and activist living with Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and MAP (mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis). I am an activist in regards to educating the world about the prevalence of MAP, not only as one cause for CD/UC, but other diseases. My blog and website deal with my precarious and sometimes humorous CD/UC journey, plus MAP education. I am passionate about good toilet paper, researching CD/UC and sharing the nuances of information for causes, treatments and how to protect ourselves against MAP exposure. MAP is a hearty, ever evolving bacterium transmitted most commonly through tainted dairy and tainted water supplies globally. We must question our thirst quenchers! The good news is there is strength in numbers, the more we know, the better. Stop by to learn more and please introduce yourselves!
