My name is Lilith Maclin and if you suffer from a digestive disorder, you can find a wealth of information about this type of medical condition in my blog. Three years ago, my husband was having severe stomach cramps and his doctor told him that he had a digestive disorder called ulcerative colitis. After my husband was diagnosed, I did thorough research to learn how to control and manage this disorder. We kept track of everything that my husband ate and when a certain food caused a flare-up of his condition, he eliminated that food from his diet.

If you want more information about this disorder and how to manage it, you can find it here by reading my blog.

If you live in a part of the country with temperate autumns and winters, your flip flops may never get a break from daily wear. These comfortable slip-ons come in every color and style under the sun and can be suitable for casual wear or even more dressy occasions (albeit amid a bit of controversy at times).
