I’m the type of person who really tries not to let UC control me. But it has become more and more difficult. I can’t even drive to work without being in panic about whether or not I’ll make it if I have to go to the bathroom. I literally work 10 minutes away from my […]
What up UC’ers, I’m way overdue with sharing a meal with all of you, but tonight was a big winner for us. And I’m hoping it will be for you too! This IS EASY TO COOK. EASY TO PREPARE. And Tasted GOOD!
My name is Sally and I have lived in various countries, taking my ulcerative colitis with me where ever I go. Born in South Africa, my UC started in Canada, I was ok in England, diagnosed in Australia (6 years ago) and well, pooped in a plastic bag on my sister-in-law’s bedroom floor in a […]

In November of 2013 I finally reached a breaking point I couldn’t handle the pain, achiness, the random fevers, the bleeding. I called to schedule a scope and because I like to be somewhat awake the doctor told me the colon that was left now has ulcerative colitis.
Shelly was diagnosed 2 weeks ago. In the middle of a bad flare and eating a soft food diet for a month now, she’s committed to figuring out what to eat to get back to normal and on with her life.

I am still completely wiped out from the hospital and have again come home from school. My immune system is suppressed from the humira so the c diff hitting me twice is really my problem.
While visiting my fiance one weekend, she used the bathroom after me and noticed some blood in the bowl. She asked me about it, and I didn’t know what to say. After arguing for a while, I eventually agreed to see a doctor.
I’m terrific. I quit the meds, I stopped seeing my doctor, I stopped doing anything related to my UC. However, I’m working out at the gym, I ride my bike, I can drink (no beer), I eat almost whatever I want (no fruits, except for berries) and feel amazing.
