cant do the big enemas, they make me really ill with all side effects and cant hold it in.
was given colifoam instead... even though it doesnt go as far.
tumeric capsules... well im embarrassed to say that the bottle is sitting there still un
i think i have a psychological block to taking them... for some reason i am equating them with something along the lines of chilli powder. i know it makes no sense really and is totallly illogical. but i think thats whats in my head.
im afraid of the pain when it goes thru my gut like chilli would feel. or cumin or something like that.
i know i know... im going downstairs now to take one right now.
im such a weirdo i guess.
i am definitely flaring.. have been since end of May.
its weird ... i have no idea how im really doing as most of the days lately i have been fine, then bam it gets bad at night and im miserable.
and during the day i feel like crap, but i think its the pred.
im definitely doing better than a month ago when i was bad and bleeding all day long.
now i have bms with no blood and they are a bit formed.
so i THINK im on the mend... but dont really know.
