I saw this on one of our other boards, and thought we UC-ers might also be interested. For those of you who are, our Administrator has tips for finding and using on-line support groups in a USA Weekend article:

Moderate to severe left-sided UC (21 cm) diagnosed 2001.
Asacol, Rowasa, Pentasa, Prednisone, Entocort, Azathioprine
Avascular necrosis in both shoulders is my "forever" gift from steroid therapy.
Colazal,  Remicade, Nature's Way Primadophilus Reuteri. In remission since April, 2006.

Good article

Being new here I am not really sure what to post and what not to post. That article has answered most of those questions.
