How Can We Help

A Brief History

Alan has lived with Ulcerative Colitis for over 15 years, it certainly hasn't been an easy ride, there has been blockages, constant fatigue, blood loss, non-stop pain, erythema nodosum. The medication can have unpleasant side effects- mesalazine, prednisolone,  hydrocortisone, mercaptopurine (6-MP). Sadly Infliximab hadn't yet been licensed for use with Colitis, it was licensed with Crohns Disease but not Colitis. By 2009 the medication stopped working, after a bad flare and hospital stay early 2010 it was decided to remove his colon.

So, how can we help?

With support!
Over the years I have found ways of coping with both the physical and psychological symptoms of my Inflammatory Bowel Disease, however, I understand we are all individuals and deal with things in different ways.
Being active has helped a huge amount, not just physically but spending time outdoors has huge benefits for my mental health, the fresh air and exercise can help release those endorphins to help with that ‘feel good’ factor.
You don’t have to climb mountains-
A gentle stroll around the block can make a huge difference, we can help with that.
A woodland walk is a great way of getting the fresh air and vitamin D the body benefits from, we can help with that.
A wander to your local shops can help combat the anxiety, we can help with that.
Even relaxing around a real fire in the woods learning new skills can help beat the fatigue, strange I know, but we can help with that.
If you have an IBD or Ostomy and want to know more than don’t hesitate to get in touch .
