Good to hear back, guys.....and thanks for the kind words, Judy2. I joined this site not too long ago (never joined one of this nature dealing with health issues) in hopes of sharing experiences and hear some other people's stories to ease my own thought of my state of dis-ease. I had read many posts and various topic and I must say that I really do not have it as bad as many others. It has also helped me therapeutically as well by talking about
my ailments...I have found, in my experience that some people wish not to discuss these matters as it may makes them feel "embarrassed or ashamed"....but there is nothing to hide, we all get sick, we all have health problems (sooner or later) and we all will die (not to sound depressing). Anyway, bottom line- I am glad that I joined this site.
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 1996.
Diagnosed with Pyoderma Gangrenosum 2002.
Asacol 400mg x 8 per day.
Low Fiber/Low Residue Diet works best for me.
I take plenty of supplements as well.
Diagnosed with Gout 2008.
Flare-ups need Decadron and Prednisone.
