    1. Thank you so much. Did your cousin get a diagnosis? GI problems are so hard to live with but I will get to a point where I am feeling better. I just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other until I get there :)

  1. I wonder about your diagnose. Go on a Gluten Free diet. Stay away from wheat, barley and rye. Possibly oats. Check out Celiac disease. There is a bacteria that causes ulcers and it can be treated. I have Celisc and the bateria. Think Positive!


    1. I have cut out gluten and it did help but the symptoms kept coming back. They tested me for celiac and I was negative but there my be sensitivities they can’t test for including to certain sugars. They took biopsies and I’ve had two rounds of blood tests, no infection. It’s sad but I hoped for bacterial infection. That could be cured. I am doing my best to keep positive but I’m taking it day by day and not being too hard on myself if I can’t. Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. I’m sorry about your health issues. I hope that now that you know what’s wrong you’ll be able to keep it under control. You’ve written things about your girlfriend before. She sounds like a very special person.

    It was good to see you back on the Coffee Share again! I hope you’re able to get back into your writing and that we see you around. Have a great week.


  3. My ex husband has ulcerative colits. It’s not fun but once you find what works, it’s much better. During the time we were together, 16 years, he only had one horrible episode of it and a couple of minor ones that were next to nothing and lasted only about three days. The major attack had him at home on complete bed rest for about a month before he could see the doctor that first diagnosed him in college to get the right medicine, which is not a normal treatment. Once we got him an appointment and he was started on the medication, he got well within just days.

    I hope you are able to find a good treatment plan that will put it in remission.


  4. I’m so sorry for all of the troubles that you’ve been having. I hope that now that you have a diagnosis, the docs are able to find a treatment that works for you. And you have a very special girlfriend. That’s awesome that she took such good care of you.


  5. Oh dear Lisa. What a nightmare for you to go through… What a wonderful woman your girlfriend is. Hopefully, now that they know what it is, you can be properly treated and maybe one day healed. One can hope…


    1. Thank you so much for the kind words. There will be treatment, and healing for a time, but there will always be the possibility of my symptoms returning BUT next time I will know what to do and I won’t get so sick again, hopefully :)

    1. This is true! Like so many things it’s better to know the hard truth and start the path toward healing. I’m not upset by the diagnosis, I only needed a little processing time. I’m just happy that I am feeling better. That’s all that matters now :)
