MY name is Amelia, Mia for short. I have had UC for 4 years now! I don’t know what to do. I Work full time and have a 3 year old son, I’m Married and need some help with this UC!!!!!!!!
My Ulcerative Colitis Experience:
I’m 20 years old and had ulcerative colitis a couple months before I had my son in 2008. I work full time and I’m married. I don’t have a support group. I’m actually having my grandmother buy scd books for me!!! I have terrible bathroom problems, i go on a really bad day at least close to 20 times. Night time is the Worst.
It seems like I can’t eat anything at all.
I believe I’m lactose intolerant which
sucks because I love diary products.
It’s sooo bad all the time everybody at works knows about my problem and sometimes I have to leave work cause I didn’t make it, I work at a gas station so it is really hard to use the bathroom when you have other people using it and to clean up after them. It just embarrassing!
I cant go on trips, can’t go to a friends house without using their bathroom, can’t go out and eat, Just can’t do anything! I keep telling myself that I can get health But I Cant.
I love Caffeine I love Junk food!!!
I know my husband is getting tired of it. Sometimes I can’t even have (sorry) sex my stomach always hurts and every time I lay down I get right back up and run to the toilet. GRRRR. I want to become a CNA, that’s hard when you can’t even take care of your self! I looked into everything and how Scd Diet is going to help. I’M TIRED OF CRAPPING MY SELF!! I want to be healthy I really do!!! It’s just so hard for me! I just need some support in this i really don’t have anybody besides my husband and grandma that just doesn’t seem to be enough! Maybe YOU can help me? Just maybe!
I’ve tried sulfasalazine some type of cholesterol powder crap! And pred. that worked the best
