When my diagnosis was Ulcerative Colitis, I’d say this followed by “it’s kinda like the sister illness to the better-known Crohn’s disease” and then sometimes I’d get nods of I-recognise-that-Crohn’s-word …  I’d explain they’re both under the ‘IBD umbrella’ too.

I mostly say lupus (not lupus myelitis) even some people with lupus haven’t heard of it. But I do catch the eye of people with transverse myelitis. Smh I relate to so many groups and then none at all at the same time
