I just had a colonoscopy and found out that I have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) called Ulcerative Colitis.

I have blood in my stool and have had severe diarrhea for over a year. I am 51 years old and I no longer have solid poop and I am in full menopause. I Fear leaving the house because when I do my stomach feels like I have to go to the bathroom are I always have to know where the bathrooms are. I can't even go to the fair or flea market unless I starve myself from 6pm the day before and not eat anything the day of the fair. So that I don't have to use the bathroom. When I do eat then I can go to the bathroom sometimes four to five times a day.

If anyone else is having these systems then know that you have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). You have to get a list of list of foods that cause the inflammation. Anything that irritates your stomach you will have to stop eating or drinking.

I have to follow up with my GI doctor to talk about my options. I don't want to take pills. I think I will try a strict diet first. Hope this helps you. "God Bless".

Thank you for sharing.
Hope you feel better soon, and the mindfulness brings down you anxiety.

There is an Ulcerative Colitis forum that you could post on. I think that would be a good idea so you can get feedback from other members who have UC.
