Flaring since 11/09 @ 19 weeks pregnant....Joyfully welcomed David James into the world on 3/6/10.
June 2010 - Looks like the remicade is finally working, cautiously entering remission!! First prednisone will go, then we'll see what else we can get out of the medicine cabinet.
You shouldn't beat yourself up over stopping the 5ASAs. I always took mine and I still ended up in a terrible flare that was not controllable with 5ASA drugs. It could have happened to you regardless. Just because you take the meds daily doesn't mean you will be able to avoid a flare forever.
