So, I went to Baltimore this past weekend and had a wonderful time...the Steelers won! I haven't eaten much the past three or four days because my poor colon has been a mess, plus after a long weekend with hardly any sleep I am far too tired to keep running to the bathroom
Anyways, I come home to a house of sick family members. Step-dad has a stomach virus, little brother has an upper respiratory infection, and my mother appears to be getting the flu. Last March when I got the flu I ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks and quite frankly very, very close to a coma and who knows what else...
. Needless to say, I hightailed it out of my house and am hiding out at my boyfriend's place until things clear up, but I feel as if I'm having a serious anxiety attack. I am so so terrified of getting sick like that again and I'm afraid that even 5 minutes in my house exposed me to the germs and that I'm doomed. I don't want to ruin another Christmas with this stupid UC. These medicines just mess with my WBC so badly--its not extremely low, but its not normal and I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas for good immune system boosting vitamins/supplements that I can take?
