I know exactly how you feel because I was there...for years I used up all my sick time due to uc because I was either too tired to get to work or too sick. I was also on Remicade before I took matters into my own hands.
If you want to try a diet approach that worked for me, let me know:
of course, what worked for me may not work for you since we are all different but it's worth a try in my opinion. I'm eating better than ever before and I'm not on meds anymore and my energy levels are almost normal.
