I was diagnosed with colitis a little over a year ago in September of 2011. It was the beginning of my senior year of high school. I was put on asacol, which seemed to make it worse, so my dr. put me on prednisone, which I remained on for about 3 months. I then started getting remicade as I began to wean off the prednisone. Once I was stable, my dr. switched me to 6mp and allopurinol, which I've been on in remission for the last 10 months or so. Though I consider myself lucky, it has not been an easy year. I still get fatigued easily and I find it especially hard to eat healthily at school with all my dietary restrictions (I am also a vegetarian). Please sign my petition to help spread awareness. That's one of the best ways we can help ourselves. Thank you. http://www.change.org/petitions/spread-awareness-about-and-increase-funding-for-crohn-s-and-colitis
