  1. Hi Tina – I have read your blog for years now – love it! My son’s girlfriend just found out she has Ulcerative Colitis 🙁 — she is so young – 21! I don’t want to ask you to go into a ton of detail – but can you tell me, from your years of experience with this condition, what i the best book you have read on the subject and are there any tips that you have discovered through the years that have been super helpful? Also, how much of a rule do you believe stress has to do with it? Thank you SO MUCH! I hate to bug you, but when I found out I knew that you might have some helpful information. Thanks!!!

    1. I am so sorry to hear that. As for advice, please tell her to find a doctor that she likes, trusts, and respects. As for books, this one was super helpful to me, especially with regard to managing stress and anxiety: http://carrotsncake.com/2015/10/the-book-that-changed-my-life-and-helped-me-frigging-relax.html Also, please pass along this link: http://carrotsncake.com/2014/11/remicade-infusion-2-everything-i-tried-ulcerative-colitis.html It gives a summary of everything I’ve tried over the years to get me into remission. And, of course, tell her to contact me anytime about anything!!
