Hi - I am a 31yr old man with 2 lovely kids and a very supportive wife.
I have had a J pouch now around 4 years suffered previously from colitis.
I cant really complain about my J Pouch, I know from this forum that a lot of people suffer a lot more than what I do, mine works great only suffer from trapped wind which I have learnt to deal with but we all have our good and bad days.
My main concern is I suffer from fatigue, joint aches, I'm easily frustrated and my concentration levels are poor.
My children are good children but I'm easily irritated and often snap at them for the smallest of things then feel really guilty for it.
At work I am falling asleep during my breaks and feel exhausted when I return home I have to push myself to help my wife with the kids.
When 7pm comes im falling a sleep on the couch.
I have tried vitamin tablets, I haven't been any any medication for over 3 years. I rarely see my GP about things as its too hard to explain about the J Pouch they don't seem to have any understanding about it.
I generally feel like an old man lol.
If anyone can suggest anything that may improve my energy levels that would be great,
Thanks for Reading
