Was diagnosed with pbc in April of 2014. Lost my dad the same week. My life as I once knew it would never be the same. 2 and a half years later I am so happy to be me. Could have been diagnosed with something much worse. My advice.. live life one day at a time ..as everyone should. When I feel good I live to the fullest.. When I feel bad I try not to complain..I don't have the energy. Very few people know I have pbc. Surround your self with positive people!
