My name is Jean, I have been diagnosed and living with ulcerative colitis now for 6 years. It has become unbearable. I work 40 hours a week as an administrator. These years have been mostly unbearable. I have tried most of the medications without much success and my symptoms are getting worse.
I am due another colonoscopy in a couple of months and fear every time of getting colon cancer. I am 57 years old and my life has been literally controlled by this awful disease. I use mind control most of the time to deal with it. It’s getting very scary to me to see what comes out of my body, I want to screammmmm. I wrote a little poem to express my conclusion:
Colon Removal, here I come. No more fear, nowhere to run.
I can’t keep on living this way, so much pain and misery everyday.
No dates, not even a love tap, someone help me to get my life back.
I feel like a victim of a demon who came in the night,
and hexed me with something he knew I’d have to fight.
So, fight, fight, I have and never will surrender,
But one thing I will always remember:
the others who struggle with this disease,
who have hidden in the shadows like me, afraid, humiliated and appalled,
don’t give up, there is hope for us all!
Medications: any medication details you want people to know about you with regards to colitis…
I am taking the medication “Lialda” at present and it helps only a little. Not enough!
