Hi everyone,

i need to know more about ulcerative colitis. i have been diagnosed with it a few months ago and i've been treated and the blood and mucus has decreased in the stool. however, now the symptoms seem to come back.. im not sure what to do and i don't want to tell my parents because they've been worried sick about me and my father has hypertension and i don't want this to affect them in any way.
so please if any knows what to do when the symptoms presist please help me out,, is this normal or does it mean that i have to go back to taking medicine,, i don't want to continue taking medicine for the rest of my life so i would appreciate if anyone else has any alternative methods.
also, i would like to know what food should my diet consist of.. initially the doctor stated that i can eat anything as long as it doesn't affect me, however i cannot seem to diffreniate what exactly has an impact on me. so please anyone with ulcerative colitis, share your experience with me..

thanks,
