I read your article. It gave me hope. It appeared credible, very thoughrough, and promising. My situation sounds similar to your past but worse. Truely. I have had what I believe to be horrific suffering from colitis for nearly 14 years now. I am now 32. I say horrific because I have had almost not a single day during those 14 long years without using the restroom nearly 15-25 times a day. Also, about 90% of all foods available to the general public disagree with me. I have terrible diareah and bleeding. On a bad day I'll use the restroom 35 times, no exaggeration! I have a tremendous amount of bleeding and have been anemic in the past. I have taken almost every drug available and tried many numerous alternative therapies with no avail. I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on so called remedies and cures that provided no results. This so called disease (colitis) has absolutely ruined my life. I feel as though it severely impedes my performance in life and has held me back terribly. I cannot see the positive side of living with it.I am at my wits ends and have contemplated a peaceful suicide many times.
I stuck to the diet and did as you instructed with the vitamen e for nearly 10 days now. No results. Bleeding and diareah the same. Is there something I'm not doing correctly?
I feel my case is hopeless. The disease has ruined my life. I have never earned more than 7 thousand dollars in a year. I'm sick all the time every day. The only thing that helps is prednisone which I have taken for nearlly five years. I feel no one understands all I want to do in life is be normal to achieve what most people take for granted. I want to be able to eat like a regular human being. I am at my wits ends. Please dont reply with a critism against my character. I get an endless flow of critism from those who have never had this disease. They say bring upon myself I'm negative picky high maintainence etc. Therefore, I don't have a single friend. I keep to myself and I have started taking very high doses of injectable anabolic steroids about 6 months ago out of sheer deperation for a better quality of life. Someone told me they may help me absorb more foods and help to heal my colon. They also have not helped.
Please help in any way you can. This disease has absolutely obliverated my self esteem. All I want is to eat regular food digest it and go on with my day. If I can achieve that one simple thing so many take for granted I'd live out the rest of my life in peace, harmony, and total appreciation.
