I have UC, and find that most people, including friends and family do not understand it at all!!! i am constantly told that if i just ate better or stressed less, i would be CURED! I constantly hear that someone KNOWS someone who "HAD" UC and that they cured it by -----(fill in the blank, i've heard it all).
My husband gets it because he sees me running to the bathroom upwards of 15-20x a day when i flare. He has seen me pass out and fall off the toilet, he has seen me hospitalized atleast 10 times since my dx 4yrs ago. He has seen my pain, vomiting, ect...
so, i can tell u that I understand your pain! im here if u need to chat! shannon
