My Colitis Story:
I have been living with Ulcerative colitis since i was 3 years old now am 26years it a bit difficult for me to live with this kinder disease one day am positive the other day very depressed sometimes i feel like giving up everything just let go of everything i would like to know if here in South Africa we do have people living with the condition.
Currently am taking iron supplements & vitamins. its a bit difficult to wake up every morning & go to work any way i have to work so that i can be able to pay for my medication.
My family is very supportive ever since i was a kid until today i even feel like am still treated like a baby am not growing up. am even scared of dating all i have is my Work & family. i have been changing Doctors & hospital due to some reasons that the medical aid am use does not last me for a long time & i normally complete my budget before the the usual time.
I stopped taking prednisone,flagly,ciprobay last due to some side effects.
But once i was treat by another doctor from Cuba with a Suspension by the name of kantrexil and it was much better but now its a bit difficult.
I also tried to take probiotics but did no work for me. I have tried lot of treatment its not helping anyone who can help he/she is welcome plus my growth is very slowly i look like a 12 years old due to the disease . I do not enjoy long distance trips even to wake up in the morning & mid night toilet trips.
Any suggestions and help is welcome to me. Most of the stories am reading from the site they encourage me .
