I was diagnosed with UC in 2004 and I've had flare ups on and off. However, I started having a flare up in March of this year and it is still going on. I have had three colonoscopies and the doctor has had me on Asacol which is not helping AT ALL!!!!! I've called and let my doctor know that this isn't helping and they do not seem to want to help me at all except give me Remicade and I don't feel comfortable taking that because of the possible side effects. I have become very depressed because I feel like no one understands what I am going through. I've also started having some pain in my back area and around my sides. I've tried to eat better and only eat bland foods but when I start eating solid foods again, I start bleeding and have big clumps of blood that come out and I don't have a regular bowel movement so I'm at the point where I am afraid to eat. Having this disease is very frustrating and I joined this group for support and to hear other peoples' stories. Thanks for any advice. I have thought about changing doctors because this flare has lasted over 6 months and my doctor will not do anything at all to help me.

I'm feeling kind of blah today, I am fighting from going down the dark road and letting the clouds come over my head and drown me. I blew off work today cause I didn't want to go in. I am so disappointed in myself for not finding a new job by now. I gave myself a goal this month, to get out of Home Depot by the end of Oct. I had two job offers this year, but both didn't work out. my last job...
