Dear Colon: My “Dear John” letter to my colon written a week before I had a total colectomy (the whole colon was removed). Proof that I was starting to lose my mind before the operation.

How I Became an Alteregomaniac: The origin story of the Billy Boloby persona, which I created as a way to cope with my PSC and Crohn’s diagnoses. This one’s about health and music (and the importance of having awesome friends and family members offering their support).
