2 Quick Questions
I’ve been wondering for some time now but keep forgetting to ask the UC community:
1. I LOVE coffee…It’s my one MUST HAVE on a daily basis. Without it I’m miserable, gives me the little amount of energy I have to get through the day with 3 kids and a household of chores and errands to keep up with. Helps my throat and warms my tummy in the morning plus I ❤ the taste! But I know deep down inside its not good for my Ulcerative Colitis. Any thoughts, or similar struggles out there?
2. I cannot seem to EVER be symptom free! Going on 11 years now :( even when I’m not seeing blood, running to the bathroom, or in pain, I ALWAYS have mucus…anyone else have this going on? Some GI’s I’ve seen said that it’s “my” normal and some mucus is ok. Others say it’s not normal and any mucus means inflammation and disease activity. I’ve learned to live with it regardless. AHHH!
