Hello all UC’ers. It’s Shannon, I have a few featured stories going on right now.
I’ve had UC an Crohn’s for yrs. And I sit here wondering each day where the heck this disease came from. Like many of you, I wonder if it’s hereditary,or is it a malfunction of genes, were we born this way? Or is it caused from environmental reasons?. We just don’t know. Well I rently have got so desperate that I asked my mom to get the Prometheus lab test done to see if she was a carrier…. Why you may ask ? Well for a few reasons . I’m a mom of 3 kids. And on my husband’s side there are a few relatives that have UC. And I worry of course that my kids may acquire this funky disease. Cause we don’t know if its hereditary right? Well my mom has said yes to geting the test done. Plus she has had for yrs have had bouts of diarrea an cramping an even blood at times. Plus she has been told she had diverticulitis. She had a scope test done an there was pockets of it awaiting to erupt. So that makes me wonder could she be a carrier? Hmmmm….
My father is not alive to have the test. So it leaves my mom. So my question is for all you have you had any of your family tested? Are you as curious as i am? Let me know if you have an if the results came back positive or negative. I know kinda crazy huh? But i am so desparate to find a cure or a direction to a cure i would do anything just about to help guide us in the right direction . So write me back. I’m also on twitter if you wanna follow me @yukondiva . Ok friends stay healthy an take your meds an eat right.
