So what triggered my first flare has yet again come - exams. I'm in my fourth year of mechanical engineering, and the stress of exams and the term ending seems to really affect my colitis. I've been having more pain than usual lately and a general decline in strength, and of course worrying that this may bring on another flare has me even more stressed.
I exercise as much as I can (depending on strength and pain level) and I eat as well as I can (things that are bland these days). Are there de-stressing solutions that any of you have come across that may help me to get through these last few days of the exam period?
Thanks so much.
