ello i also agree 100% with Karen and Jamiee's reply's. Im really sorry that your going through such a hard time. I also understand about the u/colitis,as i lost nearly all of my bowel and all i have left is a tiny part of small bowel from c/r and that was nearly 9yrs ago and have a permanent ileostomy/bag!!
So i truly understand that everything's so hard for you but you also have to cope with ur u/c!! Are you on any med's for ur u/c?? If you are could you reply and let me know if that's ok.
How long have you had u/c for??? I really feel for you as it's also a debilitating disease and i wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy!!! Please try and see ur doc and hopefully he/she can help you find a good councellor or other.. It wont hurt to try.
maybe ur doc might put you on some medication to help ur mood's,sleep and the rest. Are you from Australia or the u.s.a.??? Ask your doc about trying Ananza,seroquel or abilify as these med's are used by alot of people on this forum.
Look after yourself and thing's will get better even though you may not see it yet!!!!
