hi im krista and i am 20 years old. growing up i was normal as far as gastrointestonal problems but after i had my daughter i was diagnosed with uc.that was in 2007. I tried Lialda and Asacol and they didnt work. I am still bleeding and crampy and bloated feeling all day it seems. I heard on the radio and from research that eating gluten free could help so I am now trying that as well. I still feel sick. the worst is that i cannot go anywhere without having anxiety about where the bathroom is, what if it is to far away, is there a bathroom, what if i dont make it. and in the morning to get ready for work i wake up out of a dead sleep because we only have one bathroom and i worry that if someone is getting ready and i have to go i cant because someone is in there. I can feel fine and then if one tiny thought gets inmy head about getting sick, I will immediatly start to feel sick and have to go. I cant enjoy trips or fun things normal people my age do. Like going to an amusment park, long car trips,taking my daughter to the park or the mueseum. I cant even put her to bed sometimes because if I hold her the wrong way it will bother me. Is this just anxiety or am i really sick? what can I do?i feel helpless!:confused:
