I know I don't come around often, I've been lucky I guess. But I could use some support :)
I'm on Remicade every 8 weeks, but for the past few cycles it seems to wear off at 5-6 weeks. This time I managed to get sick at the same time my Crohn's symptoms returned (which was about
2 weeks ago now)and that just sent my anxiety into a tailspin. I had been doing great before this, I can deal with the crohn's symptoms but being sick made it too much to handle.
My infusion is the 15th, right now I'm dealing with increased bowel movements (3-4) per day but generally not much there, some pain on the right side. Today I noticed my appetite isn't where it normally is, but I guess this is a blessing because I'm generally pretty ravenous when it comes to eating.
I guess I just need to be reminded that this is all normal, and stressing about
it certainly doesn't help.
