accident. This has totally changed my life. I was living with UC the best I could, taking my meds, always having plenty of Immodium long before leaving for the day.
It always worked for me.
The other day I was coming back from my daughters, and only about 1/4 mile from my house, and felt it. I had no plans for the day, so had taken no Immodium.
I have always been able to make it to a bathroom ...any bathroom before.
Not this time.
By the time I pulled into my driveway, I was a mess, phycially, and mentally.
I guess I always thought thid just would never happen to me.
Thank goodness I was alone, and was able to clean myself and everything else up, with no one knowing.
But since that day I am terrified to leave the house.
I have a doctor appointment this week for an unrelated thing, and I am terrified.
I have an appointment with my UC doctor in January, but I am going to call and ask it to be moved up much sooner.
I guess as long as I have been fighting it, maybe I am ready to try Prednisone. Even with all the horror stories. The Asacol just isn't doing it for me any longer(3, 3 times a day) and the enemas are harder and harder to keep in. I am now havibg to stop long before I get even half in, and go to the bathroom. I used to be able to use it all ans go to bed with no problem.
I am so scared to go on Pred, but can it be any worse than living in fear of leaving the house now?
