UC can get in my way relationship wise.
I know you aren't feeling great, but go out and buy your gal the flowers she likes the most, and offer to make her dinner and clean up the kitchen.  I found that a bit of romance makes your gut feel a bit better - especially when you see her smile and her beautiful eyes open wide.  It also doesn't hurt the old male libido either! hehehehe
Also wouldn't hurt to shave, put on a nice shirt, and polish your shoes! hehe

Good idea! I'm pretty sure my wife gets tired of me complaining all the time (about being sick.) It gets her down just as it does me.

Shave?  Nice shirt?  Polished shoes?  Let's not get crazy here....

Kidding... tongue

Seriously,  that's a great idea.  Little things like that matter the most in life.

It's not a bad idea for the women to "change it up" a little too. I find that sometimes it's nice to just really try to put on a "happy face" and treat my husband a little special. Or, even when I'm not feeling the greatest, try to get into the same "romantic" mood he's in - if you get my drift!
Pan-colitis and GERD diagnosed May 2003
Asacol 12 per day,  Azathioprine 75mg, Rowasa and Canasa as needed
Aciphex, Effexor XR, BCP, Rhinocort nasal spray

Osteopenia (hip and spine) from prednisone use.  Started Azathioprine because I was steroid dependent.

I have to agree as well that it is better to "live today" and not commiserate in ones miseries.  Although some days are tough, I am a true believer that "it all starts in your head" in how you look at things. It can't be easy on our spouses, partners to see us go through it.  A neighbor described it to me as frustrating becuase she can't help her husband when he is going through a flareup.  She sees him fatigued, not able to eat, pain....So it impacts them as well.  A romantic night is an awesome, awesome so awesome idea! For it reminds us how alive we are!
