I see SO much negativity on this forum and it’s very discouraging. As a community we need to accept the fact that we have IDB/IBS Chrons or UC and MOVE ON. We CANNOT live in the past and dwell! It is NOT our fault that we suffer from these conditions and all we can do is remain positive and help eachother get healthy! Do not give up! Eat healthy! If you are having major problems, maybe it’s time to make a MAJOR change! Maybe change medications, change doctors, change your diet, change your attitude! A positive mindset can overcome anything & remember that IBD/IBS is triggered by stress! Let’s help one another stay positive instead of ranting on about “living in hell” or complaining! Come on!!! We have all been through multiple surgeries!!! We are stronger than this! Anyone feeling down, feel free to DM me or reply here ! I am here for you! Also, I feel like many of the people “suffering” on here eat whatever they want with little to no exercise! Just remember, Mind over Matter! & before anyone says I don’t know what I’m talking about I’m 26 and am on my 8th surgery with several J pouch complications! We’ve got this!! Just remember you are LOVED ! Smile & be thankful you are still alive!!!! If you woke up today, you are blessed!
