Trauma, But Make It Funny – Episode 1: Jess and the Garbage Teacher, Garbage Doctor

 TRAUMA BUT MAKE IT FUNNYCrohn’s and Colitis are autoimmune illnesses.  Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes chronic inflammation in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.  Colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) known for its inflammation of the large intestine (rectum and colon). The innermost lining becomes inflamed, and ulcers may form on the surface.

Each Crohn’s patient has his or her own unique story to tell.  What makes IBD so challenging is that its nature is so mysterious. One minute you are feeling and doing great and the next you could off to the ER.  This “expected anticipation” wreaks havoc on one’s life.

Brianna​, founder of Trauma, But Make It Funny has experienced trauma first hand. Even though she faced it head on, she found that humor helped her deal with it, but more importantly helped her friends and family deal with it as well.  Despite the name, the Trauma, But Make It Funny podcast is not a stand up comedy rant. In her own words…“Sometimes if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry. Trauma, But Make It Funny is a podcast about real people, real trauma, and how sometimes laughing is the best way to get through it”
