    I remember that story, and I remember that comment. I also remember that the comment disappeared. I think it was wonderful of you to remove it because of how harsh it sounded. It is sometimes hard to get the real ‘feel’ of a comment from written post, isn’t it? I’m sure PeterNZ didn’t mean to be harsh. He has UC too. Like you said, he was just trying to help, with a sense of humor. That doesn’t always come through in writing!

    At times, we just maybe need to be snapped out of a funk. We’ve all been there.

    Cheers to you for holding this site up to a fantastic standard. You can only do what you can do…and you do just fab!!

    It ain’t the end of the world!!

    A huge fan of IHAVEUC,

    Awesome as usual Adam! It’s all relative, isn’t it?
    Thanks as always…Shelly. :-)

      What up Shelly! Great to hear from you as always, and yuppers, relative is a pretty key word.

      I guess at the end of the day, you don’t even need to see other’s in a hospital to realize that UC isn’t the end of the world. I’m positive that over 20 people I saw or sat next to in buses today in SF would much rather be living with Severe UC compared to all the difficulties they are in the middle of. For example, I sat next to a guy today on the bus who was blind, another person had a complete freak out session/yelling match with several people including the driver, and the list goes on and on. Like you said, its all relative. But when you’re holed up at home in the bathroom for weeks and months on end, its hard to realize how EVERYTHING could be so much worse. Anyways, great to hear from you and hae a good night,

    Thanks for this post Adam. I’m having a shitty UC day and feeling bummed out. Needed this to give me a shake.

    As always, you are the best for running this site. More power to you.
