After I had been on antibiotics for a long time, I would have issues with diarrhea, bloating, and gas. And then I was drinking high-fructose corn syrup beverages everyday. I had these issues for almost 10 years before getting Colitis.
I should have listened to the warning signs. But I ignored them, because I had no idea that one could bleed out their ass.
