Hi, my name is Holly, I am 47 and just been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis on Saturday 3rd Dec, having had Irritable Bowel Syndrome since my teens, and suffering from all the pain associated with it. When I was 23 I cam down with M.E (Chronic Fatigue) and have been very ill bed ridden for 3 years, Food Intolerances etc, tried loads of therapies and spent most of my saving on doing so. Now been told I have UC what do I do? diet is a problem anyway for me, how did I get this? these are all the questions I am asking can anyone help me? I would be most grateful. Holly.
