Is this really Ulcerative Colitis?

I have had diarrhea almost every day for over 10years. 8yrs ago I also started having a lot of blood in the stools but only some of the time. The blood is red and pours out so it seems more likely caused by hemorrhoids. I get cramps when I have to go, but never fever. In 2004 I got a colonoscopy and they said I had UC. After ready up on symptoms I am beginning to wonder, because I never have fever and its not flare ups, it's every day. If I go without eating all day, which I have to now because I'm working, and I only eat dinner, I go an avg. of 6 times a day, if I eat that can go from 10-12 times a day. Any time I've had blood work done it's always been normal,even when I had the blood in the stools, now I just had it done and my hct, hgb are low and platelets high. I am very tired and have no staminia, I'm beginning to wonder if I am bleeding inside.
I guess my question is does this really sound like UC and if not, what else causes constant diarrhea?
