One of the 15,000 ulcerative colitis folks using the site adds:
"Like many UCers I have spent many hours trawling the internet googling the condition and came across your website a few years ago. I read your ebook and really liked your honesty and humour. As everyone says your positivity is so encouraging and now this is my go to website when I'm thinking about UC. Thankfully my symptoms are pretty much under control at the moment but just wanted to say thanks." Kate

Finally after being placed on prednisone 20mg tablets for the past 3 weeks and now starting to taper by 5mg every 2 weeks, I’m getting some relief..I’m also taking Balsalazide 3 capsules 3X daily, Canada suppository at night, probiotics 2x daily..bms are no longer bloody and the rectal pain is almost gone. Frequency has also improved.
