Heather - dont' worry about your crappola! In some comforting way good to know we all have it once in a while. Sorry you have it now, however. My thought today was about using a suppository in the morning and enema at night. I keep them in fine but the NP told me there are no steroid suppositories for me like the enemas. I have used Canasa (although I can't tolerate them) and they were easy to use and stay in.
I absolutely know that stress and anxiety causes problems with UC - especially for me. I was diagnosed soon after my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer. He is doing quite well - in remission now but still has stage 4. I have upped my Xanax to as high as I am allowed by my doctor hoping that will help to get ME into remission. I believe after reading here that my flares/bleeding/mucous are mild compared to many others here. Doctor (after my scope) said mild to moderate confined to rectum.
Thanks for your reply - helps me stay calm and continue to fight towards feeling better, etc.
