Okay... I normally take my night pills about 8-9 pm.... then the rowesa just before bed. Have been faithfully takin the rowesa for 4-5 nights in a row. Cause I want to get better. I always have remembered my nightly pills, but sometimes forget enema cause I fall asleep. Probably cause I hate those things, but have been working hard to remember them. Last night, I fell asleep early in my recliner watchin a movie. I've been sleepin alot lately. My girl friend tried to wake me to go to bed, but I am a heavy sleeper. I also sleep talk, and even somtimes sleep walk. She says I woke and talked to her, but refused to actually get out of the chair ( this has happened before ). My little sister used to claim to have full conversations with me while I was sleeping when we were kids. But this is off topic.
My question is this.... I forgot all night meds last night. Pills, enemas, aloe vera, probiotics. The whole lot of them. Now today. My symptoms seem gone. Almost like I never had this disease. I slept through the night. Woke at 7. Had one small loose bm at 7:30. Had a big breakfast at 8. Had another small loose bm about 9. Then nothing. No cramping, no urgency. Maybe a little gas after lunch. I've ate healthy today. Corncakes ,decaff coffe for breakfast. Spinach, sunflower seeds, and ginger ale for lunch. But has been a really good day.
Why if I missed all my meds?
