JennC...what meds are you on at this time?
Seems your superwoman energies are understandably waning...do make sure you get blood tests done to check iron/B12 as well as thyroid and Vitamin D.
I would suggest you take vitamin D as well anyway.
Do you have enough supports at home...maybe someone can come in and help with some of the stuff around the house?
ARe you taking classes throughout the summer?
Are you taking in enough food with proteins and carbs to help with energy levels?
I do hope you're getting holidays..maybe that will be a time for you to regenerate and your UC will be improving by then.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
