Hi all you new folks since I last wrote. Miss all you "long time" guys and your sense of humor. Well, of course I was away becuase I was feeling good even though my company downsized (I am the only employee left in my town and that feels precarious), I traveled for work a lot in the last month and I was a baking fool under major time limits. Huge cakes, dessert for 75 people, 300 mini desserts and then 75 mini pies all within a month while traveling for work. I guess it has all caught up with me.
Thinking I have a partial obstruction. Tossed cookies (literally! and a few other things) Thursday night in one of those "please just let me die" nights. My guts feel luck a truck hit me....hmmm I can hear a major expressway from my bathroom????? So maybe the guts are just sore from a night a Heave Ho (no pirate patch included). That's what I chose to believe.
Right now I am downing the Ensure and Gatorade (I am so sick of Ensure, but it is the best option for me). So our best friend was sleeping over Thursday night in the room next to our bed/bathroom. He never heard a thing he says. My poor husband wishes he was so lucky (he barfs if he even hears someone yakking and I had to send him from the room to keep from cleaning up 2 messes)! I promised both caring men (mostly my loving husband) that if my guts were still too sore to walk without supporting them with my arms by Wednesday--I would call the GI
Ha...GI got to me first with a reminder call that I have my 6 month appt this Wednesday! I had completely forgotten.
So...here's a ? amongst the rambling. GI REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY wants me on remicade and would possibly settle for Imuran. I still dont want to go there. So how do I get all better in 2 days
Seriously...any recommendations on very logical arguments to make for not taking new drugs when you go in with a flare? Do I counter with a willingness to try a short stint of Pred even though I know he practically never prescribes it and I am not a big fan (keeping in mind that I have never had to take Pred for longer than 2 months in a stint)?
thanks for listening.....promise I'll try to be around more as the workload decreases
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
