About

I was a pretty normal guy until I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I was very into music and sport and had an active social life. But a year after my diagnosis things became severe and the latter two were taken away from me. I was housebound for a year and had a lot of time to think and reflect and even write a book and an acoustic album. Feel free to visit http://www.shituation.net which is the official website for my book! And please help spread awareness for this disease by “liking” this page- http://www.facebook.com/jonclarke14Β and following the Twitter @Sh_tHappensJC.

As a result of my book “Shituation” I have developed a real passion for writing. That’s what this blog is for. They say that Philosophy is the biography of the Philosopher. This more or less sums up the majority of the content. All the things I thought about whilst being confined to my bed have been published. And more recently I have been writing about my greatest obsession: Sport. Hopefully you can find something of interest or something relatable amongst my ramblings!

Below is a small sample of my acoustic work. (Skip to about the minute mark if you want to see some interesting techniques I’ve been working on πŸ˜‰ Enjoy πŸ™‚

    hi has you colitis been controlled with medication or did you have the operation gonna get your book!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • hi faith πŸ™‚ a couple of weeks ago i was choosing between methotrexate medication or surgery to get better. didn’t want to do either! but while i was researching both, i was put on a long course of antibiotics. no one expected them to make a difference, and whether it was them or whether it just got better on its own i don’t know! i think every sufferer finds different combinations of med/lifestyle that help them. i don’t know how bad things are for you, but keep experimenting and you will probably find something that works for you!! and if you don’t, don’t worry about surgery too much. you’re very young so there shouldn’t be a rush if school is manageable for you πŸ™‚ but having talked about it alot, i think many people often wish they’d had surgery earlier. i’ve added you on facebook, so feel free to message me there if you want any advice any time ok πŸ™‚
