Not all medications are bad
This may be a controversial statement, but not all medications are bad. Sometimes you need them to get your life back, so don’t be afraid of them.
You see, there are 4️⃣ things I wish I knew about Ulcerative Colitis from the beginning and this is one of them.
✨HINT: Go to Youtube to get the three other lessons I learned!
Eleven years ago, if someone had told me these four things, who knows how my healing journey might have gone.????
When I was first diagnosed, I thought I could manage my symptoms with diet???? and lifestyle????️♀️ and supplements???? and whatever else… but I did not have great success.
Still, I was super hesitant to try biologic medications. I had heard about all the side effects and some can be really scary.
But at the same time, I was sick.????
My body was flaring out of control, I was going to the bathroom up to 30 times a day with bloody diarrhea, my hair was falling out, I was dragging myself around, and I was exhausted because my body was falling apart.
And looking back ????, I feel like I waited too long.
At the end of the day, there’s a time and a place for medications. ????
And they can get you out of that crazy state that your body is in and into remission. ????♀️
Share this post if you resonated with my story + feel like meds too often get a bad rep! ????
