I have acute ulcerative colitis although I don't have the bloody stools, thank goodness! Although, it still is the worst pain I've ever felt in my life especially when I'm going through a flare up episode. I always end up needing to go to the hospital because the pain is too bad. My doctor has recently put me on a medication called Protonix! That helps a lot, I take 1 daily in the morning. I just feel malnourished and weak, on complete overload from the exhaustion of being head of household and mom! I just can't do it all. I'm sick, disabled, and nobody understands why it's taking me so long to get ready 2 to 4 hours in total. Because my body can't catch up with my brain and do what I want to do! I'm so miserable from going through this disease and I don’t know if mine is contagious or not, I'll have to ask my gastrointestinal doctor.
