Hi, my daughter was diagnosed with UC 2 years ago, she's had couple of major flare-ups, the last one lasting 7 months. Her consultant is considering putting her on Biogenics.
My question is how this physically affects her mental health. I have read that the production of Serotonin may be affected and therefore her sense of well being.
She has changed from a happy lively girl into someone I can only describe as Bi-Polar.
Obviously I know having UC is major in her young life, but even when shes not flaring, she is a uncontrollable mess emotionally. Its worse than that actually, she has no good relationships, having been so evil to her friends/boyfriend, and as a family we dread her coming home from Uni.
I love her so much but dont know how to help her. She wont see the doc or talk to anyone, but its getting so bad that we cant cope with her.
Has anyone else experienced this side of UC?
