40 Plus and Wiser

I am a 42 yr old F; diagnosed at age 12. I’ve had numerous colonoscopies, oral steroids, enema steroids, daily shots of steriods, oral meds (Asacol, Lialda, Mesalazine) and various others. I’ve suffered all the nasty symptoms, missed school, work, important events due to UC. Fear of travel due flare ups, anxiety brought on by UC. And FEAR of antibiotics. That never ends well…
