It's me, Jackie, and I am finally able to give ya'll some sort of update-ish type deal.
As most of you may or may not already know, I have not been doing so well with the whole ulcerative colitis deal.
On July 25th at about 8:00 p.m., my grandmother forced me to go to the ER because I had a temperature of about 104.2 and she began to like wigg out and stuff. [totally understandable since I am her favorite and all that jazz]
I was admitted at like 4:30 a.m., on July 26th. I was at the hospital from the 26th to about the 31st. I had to get one unit of , my pressure dropped due to a pain medication they were giving me, they gave me (I think thats right) for pain instead, it was all pretty weird. I had to get a CAT scan or something of my abdomen. My intestines are inflamed.
I was put back on prednisone and I began mesalmine enemas. I seem to be doing better, but eh theres good days and bad days.
Urggg, I have a colonscopy scheduled for October 2nd, just so the doctor up here(New York) can see my insides for himself.
I have also began seeing a doctor that deals with Natural Health and Wellness and he has put me on some probotics.
I am taking LactoFlamX, EPA-DHA 6:1™ Enteric-Coated, and Ultrainflamx 360, (which is a medical food type thing).
I have only been doing the probotics for a couple of days but I really hope and believe that I will get my butt into remission!!!!
Oh, and I have been diagnosed with some food allergies as well.
and get this ya'll, I am allergic to SUGAR CANE. (ahhhhhhh!)
I have decided that it is time to grow up and start taking control of my disease and not let it rule my life anymore. I am eighteen, legally an , I need to act responsible and 'be an for once.'
I do not get on the computer as much as I use to, so forgive me for not getting back to posts and things like that.
Peace and Love.
The name is Jacquelyn, but you can just call me Jack.
I am an eighteen year old female who has been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis since Tuesday after Easter Sunday of my freshman year, I believe that was 2004.
I am moving to Olean, NY to see some really good homeopathic doctor and get a new GI. I hope that this time, it will work out for good.
