I can’t remember the last I posted something but it was long time ago. Maybe over a year, full of all kinds of issues with my JPouch. I’m just feel hopeless, lost, discouraged and too sad and depressed to keep fighting. I really need advice. I faced UC since I was 21 years old, and after 22 years of multiple issues, suffering and sadness, I got my JPouch surgery done in 3 phases, thinking it will be the end of that horrific chapter in my life. But another horrific chapter opened then. After 4 years with my JPouch and lost of Pouchitis, 1 huge Obstruction, C.Diff, H. Pylori, chronic depression and stress, today I just found out I also have Crohn’s. I don’t know if anybody went through something similar but at this point I’m ready just to give up. Does anybody knows how can a person with a JPouch can deal with this? Any words, opinions or advises will be appreciated and so much needed.
Thank you in advance,
Just wanted to ask how you are going. I too feel like giving up sometimes – I guess for me that would mean staying on the couch in my PJs instead of making myself have a shower, put on uncomfortable clothes, and attempt to keep in touch with friends and a world that doesn't seem to have much time or patience for sick people.
Is there a treatment or management plan for Crohn's? It must feel like being kicked when you are down to have this on top of UC and problem j-pouch.
I hear you about the stress. I am overwhelmed by it a lot of the time. The things that relieved stress for me – socialising, cooking, exercising – are now sources of stress. Ironic, I suppose.
Do post again as you can.
