and I have to worry that it's actually a horrible flare or the start of one.  I started on Friday feeling like I was getting a cold.  I woke up Saturday not feeling too well.  As the day went on I felt worse...fever, chills, etc.  By Saturday night I was so sick and Sunday I spent the day in bed.  I was nauseous, hot, then cold, I felt horrible.  I kept worrying that it wasn't just some sort of bug.  Today I am much better so I'm really happy that it wasn't the UC rearing it's ugly head.  I am pretty much never in remission so whenever I get flu like symptoms I always worry that it's my UC and it's going to be the final straw to push me over the edge.
It's so tough to determine when I'm sick like that if it's a bug or the UC!  No fun!!
