I know what you mean. My grandmother who has been healthy for 86 years just recently started complaining about her eye sight going, her mental status going, and her 4 pills a day she has to take since the last 2 years. Of course I don't say anything, but I was biting at the bit. I was diagnosed at 22 so I don't know much of anything else but having Uc and everything it entails. Man if I could be so lucky as to have no major health problems for 86 years!
And yes, I heard about the Sulfasalazine being used in RA. It's like killing 2 birds with one stone!
