i am writing this at the risk of everyone thinking im a right nutter, but im doing it anyway, take it how you will...
everybody, repeat after me...
"i choose ulcerative colitis BECAUSE, I CHOOSE ulcerative colitis"
when you tell yourself that YOU actually made the choice, it does amazing things with helping you cope.
i mean we got it and thats that. this is our life and we have UC.
whining and complaining (like i always did) about
it doesnt make it go away, so choose it and see what happens to ya.
i said it and meant on sunday night and i havent had any symptoms since and its thursday.
very very weird and eerie and sounds like a crock of crap.. but hey, it doesnt matter... i feel awesome for the first time in over a year!
(i also did landmark education this last weekend, which is where i was told about
after a flare that lasted over a year and hospitalization and major pain the whole time, coping is hard.
you just have to power through it, or, follow above advice...
