Dear Readers & Poopers,
I think none of us can deny that December is here.
This is always an interesting month right?
Maybe you disagree. And that’s ok.
But, I wanted to write a short message to you and also a message to your friends and fams who you care about.
Maybe this is even a bit pre-mature, but I’m willing to bet there is a long list of people who have UC who thought that sometime during 2015…well…maybe you felt like there was absolutely no way you would make it through the year.
Yeah. I’m talking about the time when you were sitting on the crapper (maybe the fifth time that morning mind you), and you were looking over at the almost run-out 2nd or third roll of toilet paper for the day…and you were thinking, what the #($*CK!…
I don’t think I’ll survive this…
Again, maybe (and you wouldn’t be the first, and unfortunately NOT even close to the last) you thought there was no way in hell you’d see 2016.
This my friends, is a little deep dark secret game that our brother “Ulcerative Colitis” sometimes plays.
And, the bigger secret is that guess what…??
If you are reading this message today…
You Won. You got the prize. You made it! Yippers
Do we like playing this game..?
Of course not.
Do we sometimes have to play this game even if we don’t want to…??
But in the end, you have made it to the final month of 2015, and I’m sure you’ll be here celebrating a new year however you plan on doing that.
And I’m proud of you all.
Congrats, and enjoy the last few moments of 2015 even if you’re unrolling the 3rd roll of doodie paper right now.
Thinking of you all, especially our UK Amigo big G who’s dealt with some tuffie times as of late.
But like the rest, he’ll be back at it soon.
Regards to the best,
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
Leave a comment, ask a question, take advantage of our past experiences here, use the search boxes, they are your friends to0:)
Remember while using the site that:
UC symptoms and flare ups don’t last forever and no two people are the same.
You cool with that? good!
now get on our newsletter so we don’t forget about you.
