Hey all -
I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  I'm extremely grateful for all the support and great suggestions from the members here at HealingWell.  Hopefully everyone will have a great holiday, and maybe get a break from this DD so you can enjoy the feast tomorrow.  Try not to overdo it though...what goes in will eventually have to come out.  LOL.

I ate a wonderfully satisfying T-Day dinner today, with no gluten (made my own gravy with potato flour, and ate only the filling of the pie), and I feel GREAT.
Yay! I'm Thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving all.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.
Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, then Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
