ZLSJ......hey, I want everything fixed now as well, and I'm not that patient as I am just knowing that it takes time. I was in my doc's office a lot the first two years and I got a lot of "be patient" from him...I'm just passing it on..lol!
Besides, my butt rules, basically. If I hurry things, I'm back to nightly....I've tried many taper methods and I just continue to do what I need to. we're thankful for pharmacare and blue cross, that's for sure....ka ching!!!
Where do you get your meds from? We do Shopper's.....I realised it doesn't take as long to reach the deductible since this all started 20 years ago...haha.
Yes, my liver is in the back of my mind because I don't want to deal with it. I just take the meds and resume life as mine is. When I feel really crappy, however, I wonder. Nausea is what I hate, and the consistency of it lately has taken a front seat to concern. But, I must rememeber that low in the rectum inflammation, however slight for me, can cause nausea. That's the other reason I'm sticking with the enemas....until it's gone for a consistent amount of time.
Working on it.
Ah, Symbicort. It's got both extended reliever and steroid....I hope it helps you. But, welcome to the moist mouldy weather...I noticed my husband has that cough sound...I say nothing!!! I just hope he doesn't get a cold, or I'll be begging for him to try the singulair again...even a half daily. But, I have to let it go and deal if it happens.
regarding milk....we may have our limit and anything over it can cause symptoms. I also think some milk causes less problems, but hard to say if one's gut is inflamed.
There is Lactaid chewable pills you could try....or again other digestive enzymes that might help.
Yeah, it all gets too much sometimes...this for that, that for this...ugh...
Has the urgency improved? then something's working....
Wonder what the day will bring as far as precip.....Even Sylvia was very serious during the newscast...but she's been wrong (a lot) before. I know, not her fault.
hope the week fares better for you regarding the Salofalk.
