25 years old, ulcerative colitis, and I was diagnosed in January 2010. I’ve had MAJOR struggles this past year BUT i’m happy to say, that I FINALLY have good news!
My Ulcerative Colitis Experience:
So, I’m the girl who had tons of surgeries and procedures done within so many months. I was getting depressed and upset with everything that was happening to me and my body. I have other health issues that were also needing my attention, but have been put on the back burner due to my UC taking over my needs.
I have been using the Vitamin E “cure”, probiotics, and stress classes. I’ve taken out diary, alcohol, sodas, spices, greasy/fatty/fried foods from my diet. AND GUESS WHAT! I went into see my GI doctor and he had the mostly wonderful news!
“Lucy, your UC has gone from sever (attacking most of your colon) down to very mild (only attacking the rectum).” I started to burst into tears and he just told me whatever you are doing, keep doing it because it seems to be helping you out!
I am so happy that things have been turning around for me and I first want to thank Adam and all you for all your comments, stories, and information given on this site as well as facebook. I consider you guys family and always feel I have someone to rely on!

Hello fellow UC’ers! First off, I am soooo happy that I found this site! It’s been helping me alot with reading other people’s stories and how they are dealing with this horrible disease just like me on a day to day basis. I am 24 turning 25 in September and have been diagnosed since January 2010. I also have PCOS, PMDD, and HPV and I’m also anemic….not fun I know!
