Just a quick note before FF goes up–my friend Nic is a teacher and artist and illustrator in England who also happens to have Crohn’s disease. He was one of my first twitter friends ever and the first person with whom I connected who also has my disease. When I first started talking about it on twitter a slew of people started following and talking to me about Crohn’s–and they all had an agenda. Nic was the only one who offered friendship, and it’s been worth it a million times over. He’s smart, funny, and never complains, even though he has the worst case of Crohn’s I’ve ever come across. I complain way more than he does and I don’t even have it half as bad as he does. He still has in incredible life and makes incredible art, and as it is Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness month, I invite you to check out his post where he talks about his disease.
