If you don't remember what has worked for you in the past, then yes - I would do a liquid diet myself. Lots of broth, jello, and vitamin packed juices. So sorry, you're flaring... ~best of luck at the doc's

Yes, liquid diet is a must! Food passing through that inflammation will only make it worse!

I agree with watching what you eat. Keep an eye on how much blood your losing too. We can lose a lot very quickly, and then it becomes an emergency situation that can't wait that many days!
