Sometimes I feel like it doesn't matter what I do - eat right, exercise, take my meds, take supplements - it just doesn't matter and effect my colon (in a positive way) at all!
I take probiotics, fish oil, eat great 90% of the time, exercise daily, and take my meds faithfully, and I am still going downhill!! I mean, come on, I just have PROCTITIS!!!!
I have had a very hard time finding anything that gives me more than two months of remission, this has been going on for six years. I am really tired of it. I am emotionally and financially spent.
I can't take the steriods. The didn't help, and within in a week I had every side effect you could possibly have. I don't want to take the immune drugs - the idea of them kind of scares me. But, I am getting so emotionally exhausted from dealing with this that I am ready to give them a go.
It would probably help if I could find a decent GI, but that hasnt' happened yet. Anyone in Oklahoma or even Texas????
I know that I am lucky compared to a lot of you - it doesn't impact my daily life as far as activities, etc. For that, I am very fortunate.
Anyway, thanks for listening.
