I can't break free. I want to improve, I want to lose weight, go to school, socialize, have a life...but UC has taken over. I have no energy, I havent been working out so Im putting on weight, Im very irritable and hot tempered without adequate sleep. If I have one more accident Im gonna explode. Life was hard enough before UC, now its just a struggle to get through work so I can get home and sleep. Im a complete mess. Sorry guys, just needed to vent. Im glad we are all here to listen to one another :)
 I was diagnosed with pan U.C. in early 2007. I am 31, single and no kids.
I am currently taking 4800 mgs of Lialda, 150 mgs of Imuran and Remicade infusions every 8 weeks
Also I take:Propecia(hair loss), Trentenoin(acne), Effexor1500mgs(depression), Allegra(allergies), Advair500/50&albuterol(asthma), multi-vitamins, b-complex, flax oil and biotin.
I am a compulsive binge eater which I have unsuccessfully sought treatment for, but Ive always kept my weight under contrul until UC. Now I have no energy to workout and I'm always at home...close to a toilet and to sleep :(
What a life!

It's good to vent. It will get better. You are strong. You are! You are getting through this and better days will come. Just take one day at a time. Try your best to take care of yourself. I can relate with a lot of yor issues, you are not alone. One day at a time. Good luck, Bellski

Having Uc can be depressing and if you haven't thought about it, maybe you can talk to a therapist - one that specializes in chronic illnesses. With any chronic illness comes the grieving stages. Anger and frustration is amongst the stages. It helps to talk to someone about it. Of course you are ALWAYS welcome to come on here to vent but sometimes it can be more beneficial to talk to a person face to face. Or maybe even a support group in your town in you have one for IBD'ers. We are still here for you 24/7 though and hang in there!
