I am 46 on Sunday, and have UC, pancolitis. I have had tummy issues all my life, hated being thin. Tons of test and was always told it was just to much acid, did all the meds and nothing worked. My family thought it was an eating disorder and would push food. I hated to eat! Two years ago I lost 25 lbs in a few weeks, I cried every time I ate and my family still thought it was an eating disorder. When last fall the pain was so bad I made a Doctor visit the next day.I was told I had colitis and was told not to stop the meds when I felt better. I have IBD with UC/pancolitis.The Meds started and haven’t stopped. The last one was Imuran and it was terrible! I just wonder what kind of hell is next. I really hate how tired I am, I can doze off and on all day and even though I want to do something I can’t. There are times I watch TV and it’s just sad to see what “normal” people do.I fill like I view life through a sliding door I can’t open and soooo want to.
