  • A new medicine for me
    on Jan 8, 2012 in Cortifoam
    Good news! I'm in remission again! One of the positives of having UC is that after a flare-up, once you feel better again, life just seems so wonderful! I am thankful to be feeling well every day!I was asked in the comments about my monthly insurance...
  • Back to zero
    on Sep 26, 2011
    I was really hoping that I would make it a full two years symptom free, but alas it wasn't meant to be. Still, I had a pretty good run at it. Twenty-one months, most of them without medication, was pretty nice. However, I was really discouraged at be...
  • Still Kicking
    on Jul 11, 2011 in Anniversary Running
    See that girl?  That's me.  Running on a giant water slide.  This was at the beginning of June.  It was a 5k mud run/obstacle course.  5 kilometers might not seem like a big deal to some people, but it was to me.  For on...
  • What To Do About Ulcerative Colitis Pain
    on Mar 9, 2011 in PAIN
    Hi everyone! You can probably tell from my lack of posts that I have been feeling pretty well lately. Still in remission! (Yeah!) I'm still not taking any medications and I am really hoping to make it one year symptom and medication free, so that wil...
  • Adjusting Expectations
    on Jan 16, 2011 in Expectations Dream Big
    When I was writing my post last week I was thinking about expectations. My expectations of a situation largely determine my attitude about it's outcome. Let me give you an example from when I worked in the financial industry. The business I worked fo...
  • Today is a gift; that's why it is called the present
    on Jan 9, 2011
    My apologies for not posting. Lately, if I ever get a spare moment, I try to catch up on some sleep. With a new baby, that's important! Thank you so, so, so much to those you have made comments on my blog. I do read them, and you buoy me up. I am sti...
  • An Anniversary
    on Nov 19, 2010 in Thanksgiving
    I've been in remission for one year. It's hard to say exactly when the anniversary is because how can you tell when you are in remission for sure. But I know it was before Thanksgiving last year that I last had any UC symptoms.This is the longest I h...
  • A Real Cause?
    on Oct 12, 2010 in Accutane Drugs Cause
    I don't watch very much television, but I have still seen many commercials like the one below. When I went to YouTube to find one of these commercials to post here, I found dozens of similar commercials for the class action lawsuit against Accutane.
  • Better than a hole in the ground
    on Sep 19, 2010
    I'm still around. Still in remission too. I've been reading blogs still, but haven't commented or written much because I usually have the baby in my arms and can't type. In fact I'm writing this now with one finger and it is frustratingly slow. My 3...
