WHY ‘A GUT FEELING’ EVENT? 

In 2014 Jeane was diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis and currently takes 23 pills a day. She is Ambassador for the Crohns and Colitis Team Network, which helps to support people with inflammatory bowel disease. Every 30 minutes in the UK someone is diagnosed with Crohns or Colitis. At present, there is no cure.

Jeane’s story:
I have been living with an inflammatory bowel disease for the best part of five years. I had chronic diarrhoea, pain, bleeding and my weight dropped to 70lbs. Prior to this I had been happy and healthy. Now I was in agony, unable to leave the house without a wheelchair and my marriage ended because of domestic abuse. My life changed forever. For months, I didn’t want to carry on, but after hospital stays and extensive tests, I was stabilised. I regained my strength, no longer needed a wheelchair and moved out of the marital home. I basically had to start my life over. It’s been a challenge, I still have flare ups, but if I waited for a day when I felt well enough, I wouldn’t do anything.

It’s not always easy for people to understand what it’s like to have an IBD and endure domestic violence. By creating an art piece, it helps to show them. It has recently been on display in Nottingham where it was described as ‘very powerful’.

The nest represents her bed, comfort from the pain and chronic fatigue, the pills and drips allow her to thrive. The discarded rings alluding to the break-up of her marriage, A torn business card, my career on hold. Her intestines are inflamed and feel knotted.
