Got back from vacation and missed seeing your posts.  I WAS in near remission but a week after coming back from vacation I am bleeding again and today had diarrhea first time in about a month or so.   GEEZ, I hate this disease!

Hey, Elaine --

I haven't been online much lately, partly because it's a busy time of year, and partly because I have to confess I'm getting tired of this disease and sometimes I just don't want to think about it! I've been doing alright, though I seem to be in a mini-flare (extra mucus, more BMs) this past few days. I've been tapering off my clonazepam, and that's going fine so far, but I suspect it's affecting my gut a bit.

Sorry to hear about your setbacks. Just when you think you're finally at remission, wham! A nasty little surprise like bleeding. I hope it's short-lived for you.

Sending you and the rest of the forum my best,
