however long it takes one to feel "normal"...and remember to always taper to a maintenance dosage.
I'm in a mild flare, but it seems things are just taking its sweet time. My emotions definitely seem to dictate my progress, and I'm feeling a tad distressed lately. too many friends having health problems, and another who is soon to be dying from cancer. I'm at a loss internally because this person is close, but not close...I have internal conflict and it sucks. She's a fighter, in denial but forever hopeful and of course doesn't want to die....I'm protecting my feelings, so maybe I'm the one in denial.
Sucks....and my butt is reminding me it's paying attention.
oops, off track....but the point is I'll be stying on the enemas for at least a month nightly depending on what stressors are presenting. I'm feeling vulnerable, but know I'm having to meet the challenge of dealing with the aftermath of knowing the whole family. There I go again....
