I’m a 15 year old female, there are times when my meds stop working and my body doesn’t always respond to them.
I was sitting in class, in Health, ignoring the teacher about CPR. I really don’t care about that. I started getting all hot and sweaty, the color drained from my face, and I was like oh. Ok. Uhmm.. I’m sick. I was wrong. Really wrong. I went to the nurse and about halfway there I almost had an accident. I love school, everytime I have a flare, it’s during school. Only one of my friends know that I have it, and every teacher I have has me on Medical Lockdown and watches me closely. In a school of about 5,000, I’m the only one who has UC. It’s very lonely. Anyway, I ran into the office and passed out from trying to hold everything. It was great. My mom knows how important it is for me to just get home and not make a huge deal out of everything. At times like this I’m thankful at least one person I know is understanding about my condition. My mom’s car is new, so obviously I didn’t want her to get mad if I had an accident. So I was about to pass out again from just holding my guts and everything and my mom goes “Just let it go, it’s okay.” I’m so glad I have a mom. I don’t know what I’d do if this was my dad. And my medication doesn’t always work, is there a medication stronger than Lialda, other than prednisone?
