Could you please tell me all the colitis simptoms? :)

lifeaccordingtocrohns answered:

Hmm well okay sure :) but keep two things in mind:

1) colitis is simply an inflammation of the colon; ULCERATIVE colitis is a serious inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that is a chronic illness people will have for the rest of their lives
2) if you meant ulcerative colitis, then I certainly can give you a list of symptoms, but like everything related to IBD, it’s different for everyone (I’m sure one of these days you guys will get sick of me using this phrase but it’s so, SO true and important to remember) and some people will have these symptoms, others will have none of these symptoms and yet they’ll all be sick with UC.

Symptoms include:
- bleeding/blood in your stool (poop); often leads to anaemia (which in itself can be pretty serious and lead to extreme fatigue and tiredness, fainting, lightheadedness etc)
- pain in your abdomen, pain passing a motion
- diarrhoea, often including a mucus substance that is gooey
- increased frequency of bathroom visits (over ten per day at least)
- terrible urgency, i.e. if you don’t make it to a bathroom in the next thirty second you’ll poop your pants
- some people vomit
- malnourishment - not absorbing nutrients as well as you should be
- unexplained weightless
- lack of appetite
- general malaise and lethargy
- sometimes constipation
- fever, breaking out in sweats especially when you need to poop or have urgency moments
- urgency is there like you need to poop but nothing comes out no matter how hard you try

If anyone can think of anything else, please add it in a comment.

Also, please do not self diagnose based on this, anon. If you are at all worried or exhibiting what you think correlates to these symptoms, I cannot stress enough that you need to SEE A DOCTOR. The earlier it is caught, the better. And the more likely you are to get it under control.

Don’t forget! If you eat the wrong thing, then its easy to kniw you have colitis. (Trust me. Just avoid certain things for now until uou know. I did before knowing and I regretted it.)

Well this is it. I want to keep this short and sweet, yet be very thankful at the same time.
Thank you so much everybody, I never imagined that almost a year and a half ago that anything I’d do like this would scrape a couple hundred followers, let alone 5,000.
To show my appreciation, everyone who reblogs this post will be entered once into a draw. On the 6th of September, 10 people will be randomly chosen and will get a reasonable request drawing of their fancy.
I will announce the winners on deviantArt as well as on Tumblr.
Thank you so much everyone again! <3

Please don’t be mean to freshmen. Please don’t be mean to younger kids for no reason. It’s already difficult enough going through the transition process of changing schools. They don’t need you to be an asshole to them for no reason on top of that.

Once you’re a senior, you’ll feel different about this. Trust me.

I am a senior. 
And if you’re a senior you should ESPECIALLY not be harassing freshmen. you should know better. 

Why are you torturing poor Freshies? They got it rough already. They are already low on the totem and don’t know the school. Leave them alone.

School? Run away!

You know that you are a spoonie when your school bag looks more like your on vacation. Or if your running away.

(For the record:I can’t carry things yet, so I wheel everything. I have a big laptop bag since I couldn’t find an actual rolling bag. I also have an emergency chair in case I HAVE to sit, my lunch box since my eating is irregular right now, and an emergency change bag)

-the red/white ones are budesonide and the yellow ones omeprazole

Budesonide:

Budesonide (Entocort) is a medication used for mild to moderate Crohn’s disease of the terminal ileum and/or ascending colon and for ulcerative colitis to induce remission.

It can be swallowed in pill…

I think the colors are wrong. The red and white is the heart burn medicine. (Opremizal-sorry, my spelling is terrible)

Mega slowbro more like mega why.

Why not a mega Luxary (can’t spell)? Or Skitty. We need a Mega Skitty or something. (I love Skitty and Luxary. )

Pmuch my throughs both seems Really pointless megas. Mega audino being the worse selection of all, slowbro its just so horrible looking.

It really is pointless-though it might aid when it comes to stats. Their stats do need an upgrade. Though, I wish they upgraded them better like they did with the Altaria. (Again, pardon my spelling)
