Intro: My name is Ghassan, I’m 33 years old and have been suffering from UC since 2006. I have been trying different medications, and the past month has been the worst for me. You will read more in my story. Some more about me: I’m very friendly and light hearted, I like reading and being […]
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.
I am now in a flare, and was surprised this time, as it appeared to come out of ‘nowhere’. In other words I was unprepared for it. I’ve been flaring for about 2 months now and I have been taking pentasa, and an antibiotic. Today I found this site :) and I have began taking […]

I am currently back on my prednisone and on day 3 of the intro diet and not really seeing any relief. I really want to give up and go back to what I was doing right after my diagnosis, but I also want to become medication free in the future. Am I doing something wrong […]
It doesn’t change WHO I am. I am a crazy loud person who will talk to ANYONE about poop. I want everyone I know to talk to me if they think they may have a problem. I want to be that person that has an “incurable” disease that shows people life is still out there. […]
May 2014 brings us the “I Pooped My Pants Survey” results. WOW Right!. 141 people talking about pooping their pants and what happened before and after and how it is not that bad after all. That’s right, it happens, and we all can move forward and laugh about it together.
