Ulcerative colitis is a disease that causes inflammation and sores, called ulcers, in the lining of the rectum and colon, ulcers form where inflammation has killed the cells that usually line the colon, then bleed and produce pus, inflammation in the colon also causes the colon to empty frequently, causing diarrhea when the inflammation occurs in the rectum and lower part of the colon it is called ulcerative proctitis, if the entire colon is affected it is called pancolitis, if only the left side of the colon is affected it is called limited or distal colitis, ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease; the general name for diseases that cause inflammation in the small intestine and colon, it can be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms are similar to other intestinal disorders and to another type of  inflammatory bowel disease called Crohn’s disease, Crohn’s disease differs because it causes inflammation deeper within the intestinal wall and can occur in other parts of the digestive system including the small intestine, mouth, esophagus, and stomach, many theories exist about what causes ulcerative colitis, people with ulcerative colitis have abnormalities of the immune system,  the body’s immune system is believed to react abnormally to the bacteria in the digestive tract, ulcerative colitis is not caused by emotional distress or sensitivity to certain foods or food products, but these factors may trigger symptoms in some people, the stress of living with ulcerative colitis may also contribute to a worsening of symptoms

Dear anyone with gastroparesis,

If you have anything else GI related (proctitis, colitis, icbs) and you get crazy constipated because you don’t eat,your intestines just decide to not work, laxatives don’t agree with you due to chemical insensitivity, whatever the issue, EAT A McDOUBLE!!! I swear to god… It’s the only thing that allows me to go to the bathroom anymore. It sounds crazy… I know… Ground beef is my cure all for shit problems. But try it, worst case scenario, you throw up.. I’m sure you’re used to it anyways.

Left my prescription back in my flat at Preston and I have no medication left. Having a chronic illness is such an inconvinence sometimes.

I’m going back to Preston in the night anyway for a night out with the Leyland lot but now I’m gonna have to get there before the chemist closes -.-

I can be so ditzy at times! Silly me.
