I hate when it comes time to get up in the morning. The going to the bathroom 3 or 4 times tell Im done. I would say the worst is when my body is trying to push something out and it trys and trys and nothing happends and than finally after waiting so long any having my body try so hard some gas comes out lol. I wish my body would just make its mind up. I just needed to vent a little lol.

Even though I am in remission, I still hate mornings. I just never feel well when I first get up and it takes me a long time to get going. And I USED to be a real morning person! Up at 4:45 am to be at the gym when it opened at 5:00 am!! Now I can't even walk my own dogs in the morning and my husband has to take care of everything in the mornings as it's just enough for me to take care of myself. After a couple of hours things sort of shake out and I feel better as the day goes on.

I feel bad when my boyfriend gets up and goes to the bathroom. Sometimes I have to run in there and kick him off because I have to go RIGHT now. He has learned to just wait tell I know Im done going because then he can go in there and not have to worry about me running in there.

detest mornings, but mostly due to that's when the blood and gas starts. Takes about 3 hours for it to subside.

I feel for you.

Even though I'm in remission, mornings are still the worst! I have to get up super early because my BMs will come anytime within the two hours after I eat breakfast.

I love the mornings, but I side with you guys about the bathroom part. I tend to have an internal alarm clock. But sometimes, it's my insides waking me up to go potty. Sometimes I'm up an hour before my alarm and in the bathroom. Once I'm awake, I'm awake. No sleeping in for me. I'm learning that my favorite shows are now on early in the morning. Crazy.

You should drink lots of water when you wake up so that you will go to the bathroom only once. The liquid will help everything to come out at once.

Hi..the water in the morning will only put pressure in the stomach and send messages that will help trigger the download in the sigmoid to the rectum.
If one has inflammation in the rectum...it won't matter if there's stool to empty...or if there's mucus or blood, that will be expelled if it hits the inflamed or spasming area..however many times it'll take before the rectum's satisfied and stops spasming to be quiet.
Antispasmodics can help the spasming and in turn help lessen some of the bms up to a point. 
Again, let me stress the importance of using rectal meds.

*Heather* Status..Asacol  (3 x2 daily); flaring /Dec 22, tapered to every 3rd nite..back to nightly (Jan 22)..tapered too fast

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

Mornings suck... even though I am either in remission or heading in that direction.. Have had to ask the GF more than once to HURRY it up NOW. Luckily she is understanding. And I also am not sure about the water in the am thing. I have to take quite a few pills in the morning... I bring my water jug into the bathroom ( where my pills are )... i normally start taking the pills... then have to take a break to sit for a few... then get up to take more pills. I only count this as one Bath trip..... But it normally works out that between sittin on the throne and takin pills at the sink, that I am in in the bathrrom for half an hour or more. But then I am normally done..... only occassionally do I have to make a quick trip back.
