May 19th is World IBD Day and The City Of Sunderland Council have kindly agreed to light up a local monument Purple to help raise awareness.  You can read the online version of the article at the below link.

If you’ve come here from the paper version I’d just like to point out a couple of errors in the article.

  1. My name is Stephen Dryden, not Stephen Dryder.
  2. IBD effects over 300,000 people in the UK, not 30,000.
  3. I had part of my small intestine removed, not all of it.

Despite these errors I’m really grateful for The Sunderland Echo for running with the story and raising awareness!

I also wrote an article for Salt Angel Blue this week. You can check that out here  What The Hell is IBD?
