This week we have a special guest, Fernpixel who graciously poured her heart and soul out to answer our questions. She has been blogging about SCD and her battles with ulcerative colitis for almost 3 years! Not only that, she has been producing videos on all kinds of topics related to her progress and SCD for 2 years. She has a unique ability to share her message and SCD in a very truthful but fun and positive light. I’ve watched many of her videos and I really love her witty humor and her ability to make cooking fun.
