judy you are so sweet i can't thank you enough for your intuitiveness, and i can feel that hug! of course her being home for the holiday is more intense, but all of this information seeking is on my own, i am trying hard to keep a strong face. old hat if you didn't see in my post, i'm still not sure if the threads are followed , i do go to a support group, and you are encouraging when you say it sounds as though she is on the right track, quincy; my other daughter is 22. she moved into the city after finishing school in may and the 2 of them are close and my younger one spends time in the city whenever she is in for a holiday. i promise i don't hover i may want to but i don't. since she lives out of the house i don't think she is feeling the focus l may put on the younger ones uc. really i'm not trying to bring down the family. when we all get together it's for fun! i do a lot of sharing with my husband, and i work so i have many hours thank gd where my mind must otherwise be occupied. and askasnowbunny , my heart is with you , and all of the husbands and wives mothers ,fathers and signifiicant others who wish we could make it all better.

Yes, many of us follow the threads! We support one another. You are in excellent hands when Quincy takes on your questions, as well as numerous other members who've been dealing with left-sided UC over time. Our member Keith (KS1905) just took time to post notice of a generic Colazal coming on the market-- even though he has to take stronger meds for pancolitis at his young age. There you have a beautiful human being, who, like your daughter, also deserves to be healthy. But life can be unfair-- we all have to accept that reality. I'm glad if my encouraging comments make you feel better about your daughter's degree of flare & progress in controlling it. Keep comfortably busy and you will eventually feel calmer about her situation. Many advances in treatment of UC have improved patients' lives since I was 1st diagnosed in 1980 & hopefully, more will be found/developed in coming years. Ya gotta believe! / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])

PLEASE...it's great your family is so close...that's a huge part of healing (either emotionally or physically).

Regarding following postings...I think we find how to relate to the ones we are able. Some we can't or choose not to.

Thank you Old Hat for your kind words...this is truly a place with a wide range of compassion and sharing. There's no way one can "click out" of here without learning something.
