I have been on medications for very bad symptoms however its been awhile since I’ve last had to run to them. Initially I suffered from bloody lose […]
I’m a 26 year old graduate student who was diagnosed with UC 2 weeks ago. The process that led to my eventual diagnosis was incredibly frustrating and degrading ( I had one doctor tell me I just needed to do more ab crunches!?)
