Thanks all. I left a message with the Dr. and am waiting a call back. Right now I've noticed a little trouble sleeping so, I have a bit of a sore throat. I think since its not working it and its minorily starting to affect my sleep maybe a full dose at once in the morning would be better.
I am really struggling to get calories into my diet and all food (causes pain) and my muscles are cracking (though I suspect this is because I have been on such a low protein diet, calorie diet for a long time).
sweetmelody, I take Lialdla all at once, it would be interesting to see how it would affect me to split it up.
Fruitgirl, I'm glad its working for you I hope it will start to kick in for me too. I'm starting to think its better to decided per person on whether to spllit up predinsone or not but like you said we are no drs. (even though I distrust some of what Dr say)
PSADelhi, I am taking Vit. D3, B12 (I am vegan, though i take VSL#3 probiotic) and am going to pick up some calicum citrate at the Apothecary this weekend.
Pb4, I fear your point might be right, I am much worse off than before. A year ago I could have a whole jar of peanut butter and go into a flare and the predinsone would nip it in the bud (same dose too I believe). Now its been 3 1/2 days on this easy to digest diet (cream of rice, oatmeal,(I would be doing no grains but I need calories!), Ulcerative Colitis Food powder, Juice from a juicer (apple-pear-celery)) and still nothing.
I really can't function, I'm in constant pain, don't go to school, work or anything. I don't even feel like playing computer games, I live day by day wondering how I'm going to get enough calories while reducing pain, all foods cause pain and suspend the digestion process but the ones I have now are the best I can come with for my given situation, otherwise I'd be bleeding out of control.
I think I am heading for 6mp or something since I have never been in remission. The only reason I don't bleed dirrehea is because I'm so restricted all the time but I have significant fatigue and constipation, rectal burning,burning of the eyes, and parts of skin.
I would like to try a water fast sometime (I have tried a juice fast and it worked well at first but I think I waited till my condition got to bad to try) but right now I am too low weight (Mid 120's, I am 5'10 used to be 155-165) and too nutriently depleted.
Sorry some of my thoughts are repeated but I have trouble functioning with all this pain and nutrition delpeted.
