Flare-Up Periods...

Nearly three out of four ulcerative colitis (UC) sufferers (73 percent) responding to a new nationwide survey say not feeling well has become a normal part of life. Furthermore, they describe UC as disruptive when it comes to their relationship with a spouse (64 percent), their sexual relations (75 percent) and their emotional state (82 percent).
How do you cope with colitis ? Are you struggling with the emotional effects ? Even if a problem shared isn't a problem halved it may help to discuss it with people in the same situation.

Flare-Up Periods...

Post by primus58 » Fri Mar 16, 2012 2:27 am

Hi all,

Just come off a Flare-Up... well I hope I have...

Anyways, I always hear about everyone on here having long Flare-Ups, but never short ones like me...

So the quickest way... is to have a poll... you don't need to write anything, JUST VOTE...


Ulcerative Colitis... just add a pinch of Humour and you'll be fine!

I work for the Ministry of Justice, and am currently the Membership Co-Ordinator for my department's Disability Network... and I am also Union Disability Rep...
