I really like to hear others experiences with UC... I like to know that I'm not alone!
So in this post anyone and everyone with UC can just talk about funny, sad, frustrating, etc. moments that you have or hate!
Here is mine:
I've been in the car and all of a sudden I need to go. I grasp my stomach quickly and my mom looks at me. "I need to go to the bathroom!" I say. Then i see the mph dial move to the right... she is going fast (but resonable :P). Next thing i no we are stopped at a McDonalds and I run into it. Im in the stall and... now i dont need to go. After ALL of that stress... i dont need to go. I HATE THAT! But looking back that is funny!
I hate the pills
I hate that i have to stay away from foods
HOWEVER! Because of all this I've made a lot of friends and i feel as though i am a better and stronger person because of this thing we call Ulcerative Colitis tongue

I think my pred story is the best:
I was on Prednisone, and basically felt and acted high all the time. Instead of being depressed I was hyper and giggly all the time. I was so out of it I didn't know I was getting fat, but I knew I was supposed to exercise. I put in The Toxic Avenger, laid down so I had to do a situp to see the tv, and did that the entire movie. I then watched a UFC marathon, did jumping jacks and ran in place in front of the tv, then ran around the living and dining rooms during commercials (I didn't even get tired!). At school, I laughed through three hours of classes. It entertained everyone but my teachers XD

As for hating... I hate that after being in remission so long my birth control is screwing stuff up! And I don't want babies yet lol. Also, I've always hated pooing in public bathrooms and sometimes I HAVE to and I try to do it so quietly and I'm embarrassed with my face in my hands trying not to fart lol.
