My GI isn't well informed of alternative medicine, he admitted that to me last month, but he's willing to look into it. I'd rather do my own leg work. We should trust doctors and nurses, but since I was diagnosed I know I can't. The only one I do is my GP. He knows the doctor who brought fecal transplantation to Canada, and he wants to talk on my behalf to see what is available to me regarding the procedure.
I really don't think any of us fit on the normal checklist! This disease isn't a business. It's our lives, it's our pain, it's our health. Did I want to be put on Imuran? Not 100%, but Salofalk did NOTHING for me, instead it made me worse. I had a collective three hours of sleep every night. I had 40-50+ hours at college, a partially disabled mother and house to take care of. I thought of long term when it came to my medication, not what will help for just a few months. Even if I'm in a bit of a hiccup stage right now.
I agree with you completely with it being tougher. I needed a family and they said it was just another excuse. 21-years-old and I've had more responsibility since I was 8, then they did when they were my age.
Sometimes m'dear, we have to understand they don't understand this, and when people don't understand, they won't sympathize. We aren't contagious, but sometimes it makes me feel like we are.
