I am so glad to hear that I was able to help and that you've been able to retain it for longer this time. That's very encouraging, Ashworth. I hope that every enema you retain will help the inflammation a little, and make it easier to retain the Predsol the next night, and on and on until you don't need it anymore.
this not sleeping: is that because of pain, or the worry about
"losing" the enema during the night, or for some other reason?
I had to do Predsol nightly for more than a year because I'd run out of medical options and medications like Rem and Humira weren't available at that time, and between the pain and the lack of sleep I became *very* wobbly mentally. If this sleeplessness continues, Ashworth, is there any way you could speak with your doctor about
it? Never underestimate the effect that long-term lack of sleep can have on your mental and physical health...
Keep hanging in there,
ps. I found (& find) books on tape very helpful during the long sleepless nights.
