Let's encourage each other! This disease can certainly get you down sometimes! I would love to know what you do to encourage yourself when faced with bad UC days. We spend so much time talking and worrying about medication, doctors visits, diet and so forth. I'd love to just hear some positive thoughts! Whether it's a quote, scripture from the Bible, a book you read, an activity you do to get your mind off of it. Whatever it is, share with me what gets you through the tough times!
