Any great accomplishments after UC?
Although I work 2 jobs and take care of my 1yo daughter when i'm not working, I feel my life is stagnent. I would love to make more money in my main profession so I wouldn't have to have a 2nd job, but I find myself thinking to myself I will try harder after my colitis is totally under control. Maybe that is the wrong mentality. I am just scared that if I make any major changes that my stress level will rise and my UC symptoms will come back. My 19yo cousin stays with me and is planning on opening his own business next year so it has got me thinking.
I would like to take my accounting career to the next level and I am pretty sure I will after My colitis is totally under control. It's hard when you have depended on your body your whole life in sports and academics and your career and then you get UC and your body sort of lets you down. Maybe in a way I lost confidence with myself or something, so I am wondering if anyone has done something really outgoing or accomplished a major goal after getting UC. SInce I got UC 2 1/2 years ago I have lost a job and lost my family and have my work life and family life and things way out of balance. I need to reach a harmony where I am ready for new challenges so I am curious of some UCers stories of accomplishments. sorry this is so long.
