Some of you might remember me. I found "HealingWell" during my last flare which was in 2005-2006 and found it to be a great help.
I just wanted to let you know that there is hope out there. Naturally the people who contribute to the forum are the ones that are suffering most but I think we need to have some hope especially for the newly diagnosed members.
As you can see from my signature I have had UC for 10 years - I have been in remission for about 6-7 of those. First on Asocal and in this last period of remission I am on Immuran 100mg per day. One BM per day! So just hold on in there. The last time I was flaring the doctor mentioned operating - it had got that bad.
So don't despair. Hopefully you will find the right medication too.
Diet: Normal except that I don't eat yeast (No yeast bread or beer).
