Hi- My name is Carol. I have been married for forty years ( I was a child bride)
and have three grown sons and on Grandson. I have had Ulcerative Colitis for about 8 years and I am thoroughly disgusted. I wish I had a normal life!!!!
My quality of life is so terrible when I am in a flare. I work out of the house, and am very weak due to all of the bleeding. I don’t want to quit my job, because at least I have something to look forward to- otherwise I would stay home and feel sorry for myself!!!
I was also told to try fish oil, which I am going to buy today.
I think the alternative methods for treating UC are probably better than the traditional ones.
There are so many other alternative methods that I have heard about.
Does anyone out there have any other current ways of treating your UC that you feel can help me?
Since having my UC flare ups, I have found that many of my friends don’t call me as often, because they don’t like hearing me complain, when I am sick, so much!! Of course my dearest friends, are worried about me, and they call.
My husband is very supportive, and feels bad for me.
I go for colonoscopies so often- I go twice a year. I hate the cleaning out part- especially, since I am bleeding.
I guess my biggest fear, is that the bleeding will be so severe, that someday I will have to call 911., and that my UC will turn cancerous !!!!!
