Years ago, the "experts" thought the depression, OCD, anxiety, etc. caused UC. Now we think it's more likely to be the other way around.
I challenge any healthy, "normal" person to live through several months of spewing D and blood every hour for a few months without developing depression and/or anxiety. I mean, hey, the thought that you just could have an "accident" in the middle of your workplace is a little daunting, no?
