Mental health

i have colitis and a j pouch and I’ve been having flare ups and feeling like shit. The doctors think I may have crohns because I keep getting abscess on my bottom. I’m currently on antibiotics and had a few doctor visits plus more. Am I the only one tired of going through this?? Am I the only one that’s just ready to give up?? Being diagnosed with this is physically draining and I’m tired.


  • I understand your pain,,,,it is a very difficult disease to live with.

    Quick question for you, do you have a job that requires a lot of sitting? If yes, it is very important to buy this kind of cushion:

    I have managed to keep my UC down by simply cutting down on food containing sulphur. ie:

    Onion, Garlic, eggs and even natural remedies which I thought would help but actually went against me.

    You should look online for something called SIBO, you have 2 types, and based on what you may have,, there is a very specific diet to respect.

    The cushion I mentioned above really helps when you have haemorrhoids, abscess or whatever you may have because it helps with blood flow to the area.

  • Thank you very much. I looked into the diet but I’ll definitely look into the cushion. Fortunately for me I don’t have a job that requires me to sit for so long. I’m a phlebotomist

  • You are more than welcome!

    Phlebotomist! Nice!!! Good luck with your job :-)
