Female 28 yrs old married one child , ulcerative colitis since 17 yrs. I myself have wanted a web site just like yours But didn’t know if i could handle the STRESS of it all.I like what you have done with it. Great job! I hope what i wrote might help even you.
Stress, tiredness sadness depression,happy 2 find I’m not the only one.
I don’t know where to begin, Stress is my # 1 problem.
I started having mucus in my crap first then came the blood.I was 17 yrs old and had a colonoscopy I was put on prednisone and Asacol , gained 30 pounds in 2 months and was still bleeding.Years past I got married at 20 yrs old got pregnant at 23yrs old and my symptoms disappeared. After I was doing enemas full of turmeric and warm water with a little lemon juice. It burned like Hell! ,but it was gone 4 nine months.Until my c-section.the hardest time going to the bathroom ever after surgery and IT was back. Breast feeding ,along with hydrocodone and a really good pizza had left me constipated. I did it again and I healed 4 two years I was doing good .
Then I moved in with my mother in law STRESS!
Its back i had a root canal ,had to get on hydrocodone enemas again ,this time threw in some aloe juice and healed in two weeks. march 2 ,2012 its back . I’m going to do all of the above and use Vitamin E like others have suggested I’m hoping for a quick recovery again.Its been two days with enemas after each bowel movement and the spasms have subsided . Turmeric helps the inflammation. I’m very sorry for other people who have have surgery for UC and are still suffering. I hope my story could help others. I hear butter milk enemas can be helpful because of a protective layer it puts on the ulcer .I have never done this because of being allergic to milk,but the benefits may outweigh the bad. My husband is my best friend and has always done the research for me to help me. I don’t think i could have done it with out him. Even my four year old son picked up his toys today because he knew mommy didn’t have the energy to do it. I cried a little and hate missing out on fun things with him. I promised I would make him cookies as soon as I feel better.
