UGH....

I feel horrible tonight! I started having PMS symptoms today and my abdominal pain has gotten worse, poopie'd 4 times today.. A LOT each time... I don't usually poopie more than 2 times a day...

Plus, my whole guts just HURT... I know it's hormones and that this shall pass, but for now.. .UGH UGH UGH...

I wish I could just go through the change so I can get all this horomonal CRAP behind me...

I'm sorry, Susie!! That is miserable. I have noticed that some months myself, though not all, which I find odd. But it is just not fun at all. My OB/GYN said some of his patients with IBD opt for birth control to try and keep things even keeled in the hormone department. I am not sure I want to do that, but then there are months when I kinda wish I did...

I hope things ease up for you soon!

I HATE months like that! Sometimes I'll go a couple months without any increased D or cramps (I always get a little irrational tongue ) and then I'll get a month where I can barely move! At least bc helps me a little.
Feel better!!!! Men are so lucky...

Guess I am one of the "lucky" ones. I was all through with the change at age 44 and didn't get UC till I was 52. All the women in my family went through early changes and my daughter was told she is perimenapausal already and she won't be 38 till July!!

OMG Quincy!! 10 YEARS???? Wooooieeeee...

Well, today I am a little bit better... Also I started a new suppliment today to see if I get any results.. It's called Zyflamend, and it's got a lot of stuff to help your body to have a better natural response to inflammation..

We'll see.... I feel like I'm grasping at straws, but I don't have any more options left except prednisone again or surgery... UGH...
