Id like UC to be more accknowledged as my daughter was diagnosed last june and has, i would say been predjudised by her employers because of the time she had to have off work. No one who isnt affected by this illness realises how dabilitating it can be.I dont suffer from it personally but believe i do go through the suffering and more so the worry of this illness with her.My daughter is 23years old ,was last year in hospital with dehydration and although we have specialists regarding UC i do think local gps are a little ignorant towards this illness. This year my daughter is pregnant , a reasonably good pregnancy when only a minor flare up at the beginning so i find she has been lucky, however i work in maternity and i have seen the after affects aswell as the before.UC is as dabilitating as diabetes , asthma however employers seem to accept these illnesses.Well done fore petitioning Downing Street.
