over the past few months I have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis following an endoscopy, mri's, ultrasounds, etc... and have since been hospitalised twice for IV treatment. I am 17 and about to take my first year Alevel exams but am finding getting to grips with my diagnosis extremely difficult.. My family are hugely supportive but I don't feel as though they fully understand how I am feeling... I am also suffering from severe sickness and stomach cramps, but my doctor thinks that this could be linked to me psychologically thinking about it too much, does anybody have any tips on how to manage the cramps and mentally 'toughen' myself up to it? I am worried about my exams and feel very alone at the moment, i really just need some help and someone to talk to who understands how i am feeling! thank you
