Hi! My name is Taylor and I am 23 years old. I was diagnosed with PBC at 19 but they think it all started at 14. I had my gall bladder removed as precaution but it didn't help so after a few years of testing and such they came to the conclusion it was PBC. I've noticed its mostly people in their 40s and so on, but is there anyone else my age with this? Anyone pregnant have it? I have one daughter who is 1 almost 2 and I'm pregnant with a second daughter with only ten weeks left. (Proud Momma here ) It seems pregnancy is a bit more rough on my body with this disease. After I had my first daughter I turned kind of yellow but it thankfully didn't last long. I'm somewhat concerned for this go around. I also know another woman personally who has PBC and her urso stopped working. Has anyone else encountered that? Nice to know this place exists! I for sure thought I was alone and it's definitely been tough doing it alone and not having anyone in my corner understand. I always say though don't let your hard times become you. Thanks in advance! Hope to make some new friends!
