Hi it’s me Shannon. I previously wrote “Its a lonely disease“. I’m in a small flare right now. And last nite I noticed when I drank soy milk my stomach flared an swelled huge.
Has that happened to you?
Also I’ve taken prednisone for years off an on.
Does prednisone break down your teeth?
Cause after 12 yrs my teeth have went to crap.
Should You Tell Your Employers about Colitis?
for other UC’ers:
So I’ve read alot of these pe’oples stories an testimonials with this disease. My question is:
Say your in remission an ready to go back to work an find a job. Should you tell your new employer about the disease you have Uc? Or should you not since your in remission.? If you tell them are they allowed to deny you the job cause you may have alot of days off if you do get sick? I wonder what people should do. I was raised to tell the truth but in this case what do you do? So my question is to tell the truth or not. Hmmmm? Catch 22.
Every flare has been a challenge. So each time I’ve tried different medications. But Asacol an Prednisone helped. And being in pain a shot in the butt of demerol an deladid in iv.
I was diagnoised with Ulcerative Colitis in 2000, but the story actually begun when i was 7months pregnant with my first baby
