Pretty much back to where I started.  I am having D like you would not believe, I am bleeding, and the cramping is getting to be unbearable. I swear every time I use the bathroom, I feel as though I am giving birth. Ugh. I get so disgusted with this disease. It is embarassing to explain to people. And yes, it ruins my social life. I am not a concieted individual, but I am a beautiful girl and I deserve to have fun. Yet living with this mess is so not fun. It is not the life I dreamed of when I was a little girl. Right now, I feel as though I am living in my own personal hell. I am not in college. I should be. I should be at the University of South Carolina-Columbia. With my friends. Enjoying the start of sophmore year of college, am I? Of course not. I  was withdrawn my freshman year from SCC, due to missing too many classes. I am not asking for your pity, I am mearly attempting to clear my mind. Ever since January, my last post, I have kept so much inside. I cannot share it with the outside world, the world outside of colitis I mean. Nobody understands. Even if I do explain it, nobody really gives a darn. I do apologize for these aimless words, do forgive me people.
Expect more, because your girl is backkk :)

Oh that is so sad and I feel for you. This is so sad, I am about to start a massive job at an Investment Bank and although I can work I feel apprehensive doing it. The disease is bad is it impacts on the things that make us function. I have been bleeding for 3 months now to no avail.

I guess all we can do is continue to look for things that work for us, use herbals in addition to medication, you just never know what works.

I too feel disgusting at times but it isn't our fault, God has given it to us and we have to accept it and try and get better with his help. It's a test.

Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: Inditerminate Patches of Mild Colitis (including Rectum) - Currently Minor Bleeding
Medication: 1000mg Mesalazine Suppository at night.

That is one of the beauties of this forum - we learn - obtain information - support each other - and when we need to release we can and everyone understands. I was just diagnosised 8/25/08 have been in a flare since last May and I am so thankful I found this site. This disease is hard to accept and cope w/ no matter what age we are, I am 51. I can certainly empathize w/ you especially at your young age. I do pray that you get your degree - could you do it online? Know that is not near as much fun as being on campus, but at least you can obtain that degree and it will make a huge difference in your income and life in the future!

Wishing you the best!

i too was suppose to go to college, New England Tech in RI but the complications with this disease are hard to juggle with normal life so i know exactly how you feel but in regards to "its a test" i agree totally and it has helped me to think about it in that way. that were stronger cuz we have gone through so much
Diagnosed June 2004
2.4 Lialda, 40mg Protonics, Flinstones vitamins(yummy),
Rhinocort nasal spray, albuterol, and Advair

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, and forget about the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance take it, if it changes your life let it. Nobody said it was going to be easy they just promised it would be worth it.

I'm a senior at Umass Lowell, I feel your pain. It sucks having to go into a building and memorize where each bathroom is.
