While I’m happy to know that things are looking good inside of me, I’m freaked out about not getting the treatment I need when I STILL HAVE PAINFUL FLARES. I’m trying to get a hold of the records from my first doctor to show my new doctor but I haven’t been able to get them […]
I am always SCARED that the day will come when I need to turn to antibiotics to fight off some infection or some other strange medical problem. Maybe you feel the same. Here’s a story that worked out well. A few weeks ago, the time came. I had been dealing with a semi-bleeding nose, perhaps […]
My name is Fitsum Masresha. I have been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 8 years ago. Recently I have had my second colonoscopy. It went very well! I look forward for the third one.
Meet Roxy: Roxy, I believe I have posted 2 years ago before. Here’s an update! Mild UP is back, but mild symptoms fading away on its own after 2 weeks. Nevertheless going Dr to get meds up my butt since I got a colonoscopy yesterday. Some more… Full time mother, and although busy, I love […]

I figured if it worked for Crohn’s it would probably work for UC. So I purchased a bottle and when my next flare up came along I took 2x 500mg capsules twice a day. Within 24 hours I was feeling better and 4 days later I was significantly better. My CRP, a blood test measure […]
This is an interview I had with some friends of mine named Vinny and Louis. They have both known me for over 10 years(so that’s both before and after I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis). And I’m hoping that it can give you some insight into my thoughts about living with UC and maybe help […]
A story from an ulcerative colitis patient from India who has struggled with the disease for 7 years but is now in remission even after multiple doctors said surgery. Read his story to learn about the steps he has taken to get to where he is now with his ulcerative colitis.
Brian’s story about how he has gone from sick with UC to feeling healed. He explains very concisely what he is doing differently now to treat his UC.
I have been too much of a chicken to get my colonoscopy completed, although it has been over 5 years since I had one last time, and I can blame that only on myself (no matter how many excuses I can come up with), but this experience was certainly a surprise and I would highly […]
I would like to know from other users if they have also experienced any type of random muscle / joint pain and any skin conditions such as hives or psoriasis. My primary doctor ran a full metabolic panel which showed I test positive for ANA’s ( antinuclear Antibodies )
Survey Results are Here, (Real life, and maybe I should repeat, very real life pictures submitted from many brave UC’ers along with details of their skin conditions.) Thank you to all the members of the ANG – active newsletter group, who participated in the Ulcerative Colitis Skin Survey. There were over 500 participants who completed […]
The following day I got a colonoscopy and it was diagnosed as UC…MY Life Changed Forever. I felt happy for an answer to my pain but emotionally wreaked by the result. I felt lost, lonely and emotionally drained.
