Don’t get so set on the terms that your doctor gives you as being determinative.
- Ulcerative Colitis
Is your bowel irritated?
If so you definitely have irritable bowel syndrome.
Is it also painful?
Well—since ‘itis’ means irritation you definitely have col-itis and irrit-able bowel syndrome.
Hmmm – Can you have both?
How about syndrome?
a group of symptoms that consistently occur together or a condition characterized by a set of associated symptoms.
That’s kinda complicated sounding——doesn’t this whole thing seem complicated?
Crohn’s disease—–who is crohn’s?
Has anyone confirmed that what he has is definitely a disease? The answer is a definite no.
Is it possible that you have all of these? What do you have?
Well-all there is -is one thing.
What you have is a damaged gastrointestinal tract. That’s all we need to know.
The rest just complicates things.
What you have is man-made damage to the muscle of your gastrointestinal tract.
