I'm sitting on the toilet yet again in the morning. I suddenly feel a large amount of pain...and I wait for it....the inevitable large bm. I am sitting there and I grab a book to read to get my mind off of the pain. My butt eventually becomes numb and it's spreading to my legs. I am waiting for the urge to poop to finally go away so I can actually get up and go eat breakfast. I finally decide I can try to get up....I wipe... and as I look at the tp since I always do now...to inspect. I think... I hate you poop! I hate thinking about you all the darn time! I hate that you control my life and I hate you!'

had to get that off my chest.

Latest-Went to ER cuz I couldn't eat for 5 days and was having severe flare up after passing two kidney stones after a week of the flu. (long month)
GI tried to taper me off of pred fairly fast in hopes to keep me on Lialda and at a lower dosage of pred. to try mesalamine enemas again.  Starting the Imuran as soon as labworks done... longer pred time....yippee *rolls eyes*
Medications:Prednisone 40mg Again! (groan)Lialda 4 a day until Imuran
I am so sick of this disease!

Yesterday I was signing this same song. I hadn't been able to produce a poop in two weeks. It was in there. Just wouldn't come out due to my inflammation. It was hurting me and I was really unhappy with my poop.

Finally last night, I went 4 times and for the first time in weeks I was giddy with happiness because of my poop!

I used to take my poop for granted. Now I have to think about it, notice it, study it even try to plan it.

Darn poop.

Believe it or not, the longer you have this the less you will even think about it. I used to be the same way but now when I go, I glance in to be sure I'm not bleeding and away it goes. I don't even give a second thought for rest of the day.

Tell me about it. My life seems to be revolving around when I poop. (More importantly if I poop). It is really getting to the point where I have to schedule my entire day around this. The anxiety is getting to the point of a nervous disorder. Actually I may already be there.

We need to keep a sense of humor about us, otherwise this disease can drive us insane....so I'm sure all us can relate to the ode below.

An Ode To Good Poop (& Remission):

It came out beautiful, brown, and formed,
For months and months, for this I had longed,
I need you good poop, you know I do,
Just once a day, but forever and ever too.

Hahahahahahaha Rio, I love it! :)

Twice a day is ok with me, though!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, 40mg 30mg 20mg 15mg 10mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).

As some people do push-ups for good health, we are doing sit-ups day-in-day-out. 24/7. What a sport - sit on the throne - get up the throne- wipe you bum - wash your ins.
