Visiting the toilet so many times day, passing lots of blood and diarrhea, bad abdominal cramps.
My name is Beverley living in England London, age 46 and yes I do have UC, Thank you for e-mail, reading all the stories on your website, which I can relate to very well. I was so surprise how many people with this condition of Ulcerative Colitis. I was diagnosed in July 2010 with UC, before then I was experiencing symptoms for a few years before then, not knowing what was happening to my body, also very afraid to go to the Doctors, thinking the worst. I am now pleased to now I have found your website that I can now join and share experiences with others, and received more awareness of UC. I don’t seem to have the flare up, throughout the past months, when I do it’s 3 months at a time then, then it stops for 9 months, or even up to year, then it reapeats again. Also to be honest I haven’t taken any medication yet. If I am being really honest with you, how I get through my day at work is by having a 2 slices wholemeal bread with a boiled egg in the mornings, then not eating anything until lunchtime, then I will have a banana and drink a lot water through the day, this is the only way I get through my day, until I get home, then I will make a meal. I know this is not a healthy way, but this is the only way for me at the moment.
Right now I am dealing with UC, since the pass 2 months now, I went to the doctors who has given the drug Prednisolone, but after reading the side affects, NO WAY, I am taking theses drugs. I am trying Asacol, well it’s my first day of taking this medication, so will see how I get on.
I would like to add, I want to purchase your books, I was wondering how would I get the books by hard cover? I don’t want to print it off, once I have purchased the books. Please could you advise me.
Once again Adam, thank you for this great website, it’s very interesting, and promising to alot of readers that there is still hope in being free of UC.
Where I’d like to be in 1 year:
Free of ulcerative colitis for ever!!!
