My name is Shay I have had ulcerative colitis since I was 17, I was diagnosed while still in High School It took a while and many doctor visits finally I was sent to A GI and he was able to tell me exactly what the problem was.
It changed my life Dramatically.
I use to be such a fun loving teenager now 25 and cant even seem to leave the house. My friends wonder why I never go on trips with them camping, beach trips, road trips, I cant bring myself to do anything. I can deal with all the symptoms of UC but when it comes to uncontrollable bowel movements it stops me from EVERYTHING Im terrified Ill have an accident. It is very few and fare between Im in remission It doesn’t matter what I do I’m always sick. this decease has taken over my life and my emotional well being. I am so embarrassed of UC I can’t even tell the person I plan to marry exactly what my symptoms are. I am certainly Broken and so unhappy. I guess I’m just needing some support from anyone who knows what we go through.
