Well… I Guess It’s Finally Catching Up With Me…

Well, all, it seems it’s finally catching up with me. I’m currently in a flare-up again (Ulcerative Colitis). Each one of these seems to get worse and worse. This one is really bad (last one was in conjunction with a bowel infection – I thought I was going to die [no joke]). No more medications are working for me. My latest in Simponi, but it has been months and it…

Ugh… Another ER Visit This Past Weekend…

Ugh… There was another bout with this crappy disease (get it? crappy disease… HA!). Anyway, there was another roughly 10 pound loss over the course of a few days. I will admit, however, that this one wasn’t even close to the last one back in January 2009 (I guess 3 years without an ER visit is alright). With that one, [FLASHBACK: I think I lost something like 15 pounds in…

WOW! Relationship Stress Was Really Doing A Number On Me…

Well, over the course of the last month I’ve been having female issues (I’m a male). Yes, relationships definitely affect the stress levels of people, which (for me) ultimately affects UC issues. Ever since I’ve been having these issues from a little over a month ago to now, I went from being in really great “UC Shape” to really bad shape. So much so, that I started having tummy issues…

Yes, The Holidays Can Definitely Be Frightful…

Well, this year the holidays, like so many others before it, have been filled with more mystery foods. A lot of sweets, egg nog, chocolate milks, creams, etc. The only issue (as always) is having the will power to say “NO” to them. You can resist them or end up spending a lot of time in the bathroom. I will say that I sometimes have some of the aforementioned foods…

Stress Appears To Be A (if not, thee) Key Factor

So, lately I haven’t really had that many issues. It’s up and down, but it’s definitely something that I can live with (although it does get annoying at times). I am currently recovering from a cold and I’m taking things that I wouldn’t normally be taking and I think that has been causing me a few issues over the last few days / week. Other than that I’m just checking…

WOW! Interesting… Mind Over Matter…

I have had hardly any issues since one night a while back. It was probably back around March when I was having a couple of issues. There was an article that I found out about regarding the power of believe. I don’t recall what it was, but basically said that you can reprogram yourself. The way that I have started doing it is (synthetically), right before going to sleep, tell…

March 08 (Monday) – 2010 – Is Stress The Cause?

WOW!!! Once again, it has been forever. Currently in a “flare-up” yet again. Apparently I only remember this thing whenever times are really bad with this disease. Interesting, huh? This UC stuff really sucks!!! Sorry I haven’t been updating as much as I used to. So, essentially this means, “back to the drawing board”. I really don’t want the doctor to have to cut this thing out of me, but…

December 22 (Tuesday) – 2009

WOW!!! Once again, it has been forever. Even longer this time. Currently in a “flare-up”. I’ve been in this state for about a month. Had the doctor change my drug to Lialda about 2-3 months ago. This UC stuff really sucks!!! Sorry I haven’t been updating as much as I used to. 2 pills at night (although I’ve kind of been popping the pills to see if it does anything…

2400 mg Asacol (Doctor kicked it down a bit) Miscellaneous Foods Oops!!! I didn’t realize it has been this long. I am doing a lot better. This Asacol stuff if really helping me out. I’m still going through a few odd occurrences here and there, but I’m sure it’s all fine. By the way, the doctor said that I’m in pretty good shape as far as the UC is concerned….
