About IBD Podcast 29 – I’m Sick and Nobody Will Help Me

What have you done when you couldn’t get anyone to take the symptoms of IBD seriously and you found yourself out of options?

Going online to connect with other patients also took Meredith to places both light and dark, and she, Jaime, and I sort through our various experiences with social media as well as how we can work towards creating more hopeful content for new IBD patients in the future.
