Christine, you made me smile. I don't know what to blame this relapse on but I am going to go with my lazy eating habits. I went so far as to drink a soda the other day. The past few weeks, my eating habits have degraded to the way I ate prior to all of my problems because I felt like I was "better". I ate products full of syrups and milks, cheeses, all kinds of no-nos. Maybe the drugs aren't worth a turd but I am too scared to stop! I hope you feel better soon. I guess we are both in the same boat, we don't know if we are going to get better or worse but we are still in the early stages so I am hopeful we can pull ourselves out. I have a lot of stress in my life right now too and I am sure it's not helping the situation any.
Miracles, I was on antibiotics a couple months ago, maybe coincidentally, when my stool got really firm (maybe too firm TMI I know). I am not sure if it is related. I had my stool tested and everything came back ok. It wasn't just one stool test either, it was 3 seperate BMs. I also recently had a colonoscopy and the biopsies came back as inactive. I thought I was good for a while. :(
