Beav

Hi, my name is Beav, and I have U.C. I was diagnosed in 2002 with "mild" symptoms and now graduated to "moderate to severe" conditions when i had my colonoscopy earlier this year. I'm 42 and try to stay active by jogging and eating right. I am 125 lbs. and when I have a relapse, I tend to drop weight to 112 lbs. which I look awful at for my 5ft. 4in. frame. This disease sucks and I feel at times it is mainly due to what we feed our bodies, the preservatives in foods, the fast food eateries, soda, and stress. I believe we have allergies to foods that cause inflammation in our gut and it wreaks havoc on our bodies. I am a bit of a pessimist and at times feel I need to more positive minded. My family has no idea what it's like to eat a meal, then 20-25 mins. later have a stomach ache and have to run to the crapper with cramping. Milk products, white pasta and white bread make my symptoms worse so I try to avoid them at all costs. Tried sherbert but found out it has milk in it.....
