Ulcerative Colitis Tips


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

STAY POSITIVE

Hi, my name is Julian and I am in England.

Firstly I wish everybody in here and in our situation a fantastic xmas and a great new year.  I will add that poultry will not be on the menu.

I seem to have found a good doctor and although my list of medicine is to follow, all movements seem to be getting under control and the pain is easing.

Asacol 1000mg
Mezavant 2400mg
prednisilone 40 mg
6 mp 100mg………………………..The scary one

To top it all and because of the 6 mp and the loss of my immune system I have now got a slight lung infection brought on by flu and pneumonia injections, having just been given 625 mg of co-amaxiclave.

guess what….allergic to the penicillin !!!!!!!

but do you know what, the blood is almost gone, the stomach cramps subsided, i bounced out of bed this morning at 5.30am…no joint pain, no stiff muscles, alive ,awake, and for the first time in two months feeling really positive about things.. My three children will have a dad on Christmas day that will enjoy them and them me.

I GUESS WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT RELAX AND THINK POSITIVE, HELP IS AT HAND. THE STORIES ON THIS SITE ARE OFTEN AN INSPIRATION AND I FIND THEM A GREAT HELP.

I REALLY THINK WE SHOULD ORGANIZE A CONVENTION SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD AND GET AS MANY SUFFERERS TO JOIN IN, GET DRUNK, BE MERRY, HAPPY AND EAT A CURRY …..JUST ONE MORE

BEST WISHES FOR A GREAT 2012 ONE AND ALL… YOU WILL MAKE IT. KNOW MATTER HOW BAD YOU THINK YOU ARE. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TOO..

I HAVE NOT TRIED ANY SORT OF DIET, I WILL NOT CHANGE MY LIFESTYLE BUT I WILL THINK THAT I AM OK AND NOBODY CAN TAKE AWAY THE POSITIVE THINGS IN MY LIFE

REGARDS

JULIAN

    Julian,
    I agree, we should gather, get drunk and be merry. We better make sure we do it in a place with a lot of bathrooms. Merry Christmas!

    Good one mate!
    Funny though as I reckon as the prednisone is the scary one.
    Merry Christmas all
