well hello everyone.
been awhile since ive been here.
was in remission for a lovely wonderful carefree 6 months until the other day when the tell-tale signs returned.
bummer to say the least.
im hoping this is a quick easy flare! cross your fingers!
without resorting to pred or other meds, what should i do to maybe, hopefully nip this in the bud?
i was think colifoam as it feels like it might just be lower minimal flaring.
ive been off of all meds this whole time and have been loving it.
i want to avoid oral meds if at all possible.
i wonder why it came back.
im thinking red wine.
the last horrible flare that lasted a year and half (you all might remember) i suspected started from a night on lots of red wine. well since ive been better i have avoided it just in case, and got complacent in my healthiness and had some a few weeks ago.
so im thinking, the same common denominator...??
could it be from stress?
just found out my grandma has aggressive cancer and im in australia, she is in states.
my grandpa had surgery with some complications.. and i might be having some female issues in regards to having a baby.
could all of this niggling drama in the back of my mind cause this?
but im probably going to be back here haunting these forums again.
i hope you're all well!

but i love remission woohoo!
