oceanberryb- it is my pleasure to provide you with a little laugh! I'm glad you enjoyed it. As for the low residue diet, it is going really well. I really think that it has helped me alot. But it is kind of hard sometimes to deal with all that "i can't eat's..." as a college student i have found it extreamly difficult yet some how i mange to do it! I feel that being on a low residue diet with UC just makes since, i totally feel that mine is linked to food, and can tell if something doesn't agree with my system. I have been on it for over a year, adding things in when I started going into remission and was doing great until a bad flare dec. then i totally started over again. So i have been on a very strict low residue diet since then and now am doing great, but i'm nervous to start to add things becuase of the pred. taper (norm. this is when i start having problems around 20 or 15 mg.) But the hardest part with dealing with the low residue diet is explaining it to other people! I posted about
both the low residue diet, and an annoyed rant about
how much people were getting on my nervous asking about
what i can and can't eat. If you have any more questions just let me know!
