Kathy’s Story

I have had stomach issues since the age of 14. I am now 61. Through the years I have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and recently with IBS and GERD. The bloating, pain, reflux, bowel issues, and uncertainty of how I will feel on a daily basis is very upsetting, I have managed to push through it all. I don’t hear much on this website about fatigue. I am constantly tired. Sometimes I don’t want to do anything, which is upsetting to me and my husband. I feel guilty that I am always thinking about where we go and how it will impact my issues. Anyone do anything about or for the fatigue? I get 8 hours of sleep a night, usually, but it doesn’t matter.

Thanks for listening.
