My college team happened to be scheduled for its NCAA tourney game in my area, and I really wanted to go.
So I took an immodium, drove an hour to the stadium, scouted out a parking lot with a spot ($30!), scalped tickets, and got into the game without anxiety or discomfort.
Yay! Here's to small victories.
And my team won, too.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering. Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares.
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed wheat/gluten, other intolerances; eliminated all wheat/gluten from my diet. Probiotics (Ultimate Flora, 50 billion), trying Curamin.
Flaring, seasonal? or supplements too harsh? Back on prednisone, down to 10 mg. Waiting for insurance decison on Humira...
