Hi! I posted a little earlier last week. I was wondering how you got your families to understand the seriousness of your disease? I was diagnosed with proctitis but yesterday went to GI and he said now I have distal colitis. I am in the middle of a horrible flair. I am a mom of 2 year old twin boys and I work full time as a pre-K teacher so I am really struggling. I don't have any parents and my family is in another state. I am surrounded by my husband's family who has no clue what it is like to deal with these issues. UGH!! Any help would be appreciated.
Dx:initial:Proctitis Presently:distal colitis
Rx: Asacol 800mg 3 2x's aday, Cort enema (just started last night), lexapro, trazadone and wellbutrin-depression and anxiety, aspirin for PAI-1 clotting disorder, cholesterol med-rcan't remember name, floraster but going to start VSL#3 when pharmacy gets it in.
