I awoke this morning the sudden urge to rush in to the bathroom. Bad cramping up, and of course D. Got up and took all my morning meds, and just felt tired and drained after that. Which is typical for me after having an episode of D.
Then I went grocery shopping, and felt sore and burning "down there". So I went in to the bathroom, thinking maybe I oozed some D (sorry for details there), and when I wiped it appeared to be redish color. Which scared me, I almost bled to death a few years ago. So any sign of red sends me in a panic.
I'm hoping it was just maybe the lighting in there (had a lot of bile in my D this morning so it wasn't real dark to begin with). Or maybe I'm raw down there, and had a little cut? I'm okay right now it seems, but can't help but worry. Which I know just makes things worse. I just hate bad Crohn's days, I don't need it to say hello!
Think I'll take a hot bath and soak as I'm still feeling sore now.
