Hey Everyone with Colitis,
This must be the third or fourth post now on the site on the idea of “What’s the deal of Alcohol being OK for UC”
And I wanted to share a quick experience.
I have been taking 1-2 symptom free craps for about two weeks now. Yesterday, I drank ONE vodka soda. (If you have been keeping updated with me, I just came out of a mini colitis flare that came about after a wedding weekend for a buddy, where I had my first two or three or four drinks since stopping Alcohol back in August 09.) And today, it only 9:29 am, and there have been 3 movements so far. All of the soft variety.
There’s no blood, just softer stuff and 3 by 9am… To me big interesting.
So, I’d like to cast another vote towards the theory that alcohol and me equal more toilet paper.
Thank you to everyone from England for creating the holiday weekend we will be enjoying in the USA this weekend, and if you are a foreigner with ulcerative colitis in the US right now, and you’re lighting off fire crackers 10-20 times per day in the restrooms all over the country, if we run into eachother, you are free to use my restroom if its vacant.
Best of Luck,
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
