Is anyone else finding it extremely difficult to do any physical work? Like I’ll clean the bathroom and make the bed and I’ll have to lay down for 4 hours.

    Every time I do something physical I feel so drained! The UC definitely takes a toll on your body. It’s super frustrating.

      Agreed. I was just diagnosed with UC. I've always wondered why I would be so tired when I haven't done much or just simply went for a walk. It's the most frustrating thing ever, UC really takes a lot out of a person

    I used to almost get frustrated with myself about it! But 80% of our immune system and 70% of our serotonin production is on our our gut and our bodies are just trying to get our immune systems to stop attacking it too. Makes sense we’re immeasurably exhausted

    I've always been a tired person. In high school everyone always just told me "oh you're just a teen, they are always tired." Then I was diagnosed with UC and it makes sense. Also it turns out I'm anemic which doesn't help me feeling so drained all the time.
