I just got a phone call from a representative from Girardi Keese and the lawsuit against Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals is under way. Honestly though, I would rather have my original health over any monetary compensation. Being afflicted with a chronic disease at this age can only mean worse in the later years of my life.
When I first found out I had ulcerative colitis I was angry at everyone, the doctor, my family, myself. How could my body be so weak? This condition is disabling in the sense that your frequently have to use the bathroom during flares, and complications can lead to the entire removal of the large intestine, called an ileostmy.
I pray that I will never need to do such a thing.
