So, between having UC and dealing with the recent break up of my 3.5 year relationship, I'm having a hard time working up the necessary motivation/desire to eat.

What can I do to make sure I eat enough? I know there's always Ensure, but is there anything I can do to actually get my appetite back? You'd think that being on Prednisone would give me the munchies. But no such luck.

Thoughts?

On the plus side, I think that after a week, the Prednisone is starting to kick in. And I haven't noticed any major side effects yet. Although I have to pee all the time now. Could that be related?

Blessteve: FYI the mods will probably delete your post as it's unfortunately against forum rules (happened to me once). But thanks for your response.
