Thanks for Princesa, hoping things continue the way they are going right now. I enjoyed around 10 years or so of remission except an occassional off day. During most of that time I was on a maintenance dose of azulfidine. I got kind of cocky about
it and thought.....why put all these drugs into my system if I'm not having any problems.......so I stopped taking them and had no problems for about
6 years.....So, don't know if it reared it's ugly head because of the lack of azulfidine or what. Been trying to get it under control now for over a year with my new GI who put me on asacol which I think did absolutely nothing for it. I was finding too many of the asacol were not dissolving, so how could it work? Asked to be put back on the azulfidine and hoping that it continues to work well. It's soooo good to hear from others with the same condition. Nobody else can even fathom what we go through on a daily basis without experiencing it themselves. Thanks for the congrats on our 25th............ Severin, good luck on the 6mp, hope you do well on it.......
