Hello everyone:
I simply want to introduce myself.  I have been reading many posts, but have never signed up...until now. 
I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with UC in March of 2008.  I believe it is confined to the left side, but my gastro told me he didn't want to go any further with the scope b/c I was becoming "uncomfortable."  The only thing I take right now is nine balsalazide per day.  I've been doing o.k. for about two months now (knock on wood).
Anyway, just wanted to say hello and that i pray for everyone that has this disease or any other disease.  Also, thanks to the people who love and support us.  No medicine could ever replace the curing ability a loved one possesses.
Take care everyone,

Welcome! Glad to hear you are feeling better and hope it continues!

I like what you had to say about the importance of loved ones. I don't have this dreadful disease myself, but two of my three kiddos do. I sure wish I could love away their disease - I have certainly tried.

Again, welcome!
