Heidi

Hi there fellow UC'rs and hi Adam. My name is Heidi and I was diagnosed with UC about 8 months ago. I am currently in the midst of a horrible, gut-wrenching flare that I can't seem to get a handle on, despite my best efforts. I just spent all yesterday in the hospital hooked up to an IV to combat dehydration and then handed a prescription for prednisone. I am taking asacol and a goood probiotic daily and have been super strict on what I am eating: no coffee, no chocolate, no alcohol, no wheat, no dairy. I'm pretty much down to eggs, a little fruit, veggies and chicken but if anything my flare seems to be getting worse by the day. I am going on two months now of pain and agony and all I can say is that it is a war-zone "down there." I have tons of bleeding and am going to the bathroom 15-20 times a day. Thanks for listening. I really want to be positive, but yesterday for the first time I just broke down and sobbe d as I am so exhausted and worn out. Not sure what to do...
