What I really like about foods like this is that not only does it work well for my colitis, but you can change it up on the spicing as you like. Salt, pepper and whatever else sounds good for you are pretty much the only rules. Heck, you can even do some different variations by making some separate meat fillers for the same meal to change things up. It’s really up to you.
Below are the complete list of stories that have been submitted by users of the website. They are mostly written by ulcerative colitis patients (UC’ers), but there are also some stories from parents, family, and friends of UC folks too. Some stories are about the initial diagnosis while others are about hard and sometimes happy times that follow after you know for sure you have UC.

I was feeling very hopeless until I stumbled across this website. Thank you Adam and thank you to all who post! It is wonderful to be able to read all the posts and find people who get it. The humor is terrific. Brothers and sisters in poop!
In the beginning the blood was the scariest thing. I had cramping, too regular BM and total exhaustion, but this fresh blood leaving my body every time I sat on the toilet really got to me.
I’m super excited for this week ahead, and most importantly I am hoping to see a nice log roll down the river in the next day or two. My colitis symptoms have finally re-appeared. It is ever so slight at the moment, but I’m sure that if I don’t make some changes to how I eat(and DRINK more importantly), I’m going to find myself in a flare up in a week or two. And we all know that’s no fun. My video explains the start of my battle plan.
Certain foods give me gas and it feels like eruptions going on in my intestines. It is very painful…Last night, I must have passed gas in my sleep I woke up in the middle of the night with a small wet spot on my bottom and my bed. It was mucus. So humiliating!!!! Anyone else experience this?
I just want to understand better what is happening and find a way to feel better. Any kind of advice or words of wisdom will help. I know no one else who has this, so I feel really alone. My mom is trying her best to understand what I’m going through but sometimes she feels like I’m being over dramatic about it; when really I’m in a lot of pain.
