Have been reading the posts on this site for about 2 weeks now. (Just found site). I must admit and I truly don't want to sound mean, but they scare me. I was dia. with Pancolitis in March 2004. Never really knew what UC was until it hit me. Totally out of the blue. After I was dia. I was put on Colozal 3 tabs 3x a day. I went into "Remission" in about 3 months and have stayed there ever since. I now take 6 tabs a day as a precaution as per my GI. I, (thank God) have never really experienced the type of "Flares" described here (YET), and hopefully never will. I do admit however, that it's always on my mind. Very upsetting. You all seem to be a very supportive group and I admire your strength.
So, am I lucky, or is the worst to come? Has anyone else had this happen to them?
Good health to all, and thanks for letting me vent. As stated it is always on my mind.
