11 Things Not To Say To Someone With Ulcerative Colitis

Health.com recently posted an article entitled 11 Things Not to Say to Someone With Ulcerative Colitis. This is an outstanding list. The first one on their list is DON'T say, "You don't look sick". You're right, I probably don't look sick, to you. You aren't noticing my skin pallor or the circles under my eyes. You don't see how weak and exhausted I am. You probably did notice that I have lost close to 50 pounds. Yes, I did need to lose that weight, but I am not gaining any nutrition from the foods that I eat and I have a problem keeping myself hydrated. So no, I don't really look that great. If you know anyone with UC, or anyone with a chronic illness. Please read this article. Words to live by.

Thanks. I stopped by your blog too. How are you liking being gluten free? I am also on facebook and that is the easiest way to keep up on our posts and what not. Here's the link if you want too :-)
