Hello and I am sorry that you are feeling so awful. You posted yesterday :
"I didn't get to send my prescription in until around two days after I got it and it takes 7 to 10 days to get it mail order so I am having a two week delay at least to get to start on it and hopefully this will take care of any flareup issues when I get back on it."
I am understanding you to say you are without your UC med and do you feel that is part of your stomach issues?
I know the sensation of being anxious and just giving up but a new day dawns and it is a day to be lived the best I can. It may not be a good day but I can not give up as I have had wonderful days as I am sure you have too. You must not give up, but anticipatory anxiety (worrying about causing your self a stomach ulcer) is only making you worse.
Are you on an antidepressant? It may help you or something at bedtime as a good nights sleep can make the next day better.
IMO you are a wonderful and caring person that is going through a really bad time right now.
I am so sorry you are going through this...coming here and talking about this as well as sharing it with others is the best thing to do.
Take care of you. Stay with us and keep posting :)
stkitt, I am wondering that. Although if this is a flare it is not a typical flare for me. I am trying that Behavior Modification Therapy but right now to no avail. I cannot concentrate enough due to my mind racing with the constant negative thoughts I am having. I am also trying out a CD series on Anxiety and Depression by Lucinda Bassett. I cannot even get my mindset to sit and listen very long to the CD's.
