Coping strategies for individuals with ulcerative proctitis are used to manage conflict and illness, and can have positive effects on health status. Perceived ability and quality of social support also influence health status.

What’s the problem?
Ulcerative proctitis doesn’t just affect you mentally – it takes an emotional toll as well. If signs and symptoms are severe, you may barely be able to leave the house. When and if you do, you might have to worry about an accident, and this anxiety only makes your symptoms worse. Even if your symptoms are mild, abdominal pain and gas can make it difficult to go out in public. Additionally, you may feel hampered by dietary restrictions or having to reveal the nature of your disease to those around you. All of these factors can severely alter your life and lead to depression.
One of the best ways to feel more in control is to find out as much about ulcerative proctitis as possible. Organizations such as the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) have support groups across the country. Some people find it helpful to contact a psychologist or psychiatrist who is familiar with inflammatory bowel disease and the emotional difficulties it can cause. Ask your doctor for a referral if you think counseling might be helpful to you.
