I'm a teacher and I started back w/kids (5th grade) this week and I haven't eaten anything until I get home because I never know when I may need to spend 20 min. in the bathroom. And I can't leave a class of kids sitting there waiting on me! I did get some good news today. One of my students in my class after lunch has an aid. I talked to her about my "problem" after lunch most days I eat. The aid doesn't always stay in the room, but she leaves a radio for me to call her if her student needs her. I told her I was concerned because there are times I just have to run to the bathroom and wave at another teacher on the way by, I wouldn't have time to wait for her to get to my room. She said she would plan to stay in my room the hour after lunch so if I do have a problem someone will be in there with the kids. We always watch each other's kids when we go to the bathroom because we don't get a break until late in the day. But I just didn't feel good about leaving the student in the room, even if I do have another teacher standing in the hall watching them.
 
I talked to my doc this week because the Pentasa isn't working and the pain in my side is worse! He met with my "team" of doctors and said they wanted me to start taking Entocort along with my Pentasa to see if it will help. So, without counting pain meds, I'm up to 11 pills/day. He said to call him in a month and let him know how things were going. And if I have problems/get worse to call before that. I haven't noticed a difference yet but I've only added the Entocort a few days ago. I sure hope this helps because lately I've been pretty bad and every time someone asks me how I'm feeling I break down. When I get sick I run to the bathroom and just sit there and cry while I use the bathroom. How crazy is that? I know people are worried about me and it doesn't bother me for them to ask about me. I just have a hard time holding back the tears and I'm not sure why.

Hi Glad you got classroom help. Hope the addition of a new med brings you the relief you need. How long have you been not feeling good? I guess there is times when we all could have a little cry .Perhaps you need to talk to your Dr. about it.lol gail

Im the same lately, very teary over nothing really. I find the toilet the safest place to have a tear or two as there is noone there to ask why you are crying. You sound like a very caring teacher when you are worried about leaving your class for bathroom trips. I hope your meds kick in and help you soon. Jo

I think the Entocort is making you a little more emotional than normal. Probably a little stress too about bathroom access is making you teary. I hope the Entocort gets you feeling better soon.

The bad thing is that the tears were here long before the Entocort. I hope that means it won't cause more tears than before!!! I remember when I was on Prednisone and I dropped a bag in the driveway and broke a cheap snowman jar I bought. I cried and cried. My husband came home and I was crying and he went to buy me another one so I would quit crying.
