Not feeling so well lately. Everyone else can see it on my face too. They say I look real tired and worn down. That's exactly how I feel too. I was doing so much better for a while with that. I had even stopped taking a nap every day like I was. Had some stress, which seems to be all it takes. Had a real bad diarrhea and pain attack yesterday and this morning had pain that I swore was going to be a repeat. But luckily it passed. Kinda worried because in the past feeling like this has lead to flares. Before my GI bleed I looked really crappy, very pale (which I don't think I am right now) and so very tired. I don't want to worry, only will make it worse.
Oh and I've also had some body pains, mainly in my back and shoulders. Probably completely unrelated, but I don't know. Just feel generally yucky.
Does anyone else get these pre-"warning" signs, and do you do anything to help try and turn it around? I guess more rest and sleep would be a good start, and trying to reduce stress. I was doing so well, I so don't want to flare!
