Murphy's Law at work once again....bwahahaha!
Stubborn is right! yes, I do remember it all now.
Tell me....any constipation or that type of symptoms?
I'd start the enemas nightly...and really, I can relate.
The flare I had at Christmas was extremely mild, but I was sick for most of the fall off and on but taking tons of Cold FX. I think that combo and Christmas coming and me being busy led me to a flare with a tiny bit of bleeding as well. Which shocked the socks off me.
The enemas had everything in control quickly, and I tapered very fast....well, humbled once again, I had to go back to nightly based on frequency and those white-knuckler, squealing bms....ugh. So, I decided to taper nice and slowly and in July will go to every 4 nights. Down one enema a month....so far it's great.
I did start the Metamucil capsules (now taking 3 twice daily with meals) and changed my probiotics which is all working out well.
I've been through a pretty stressful Spring...but no relapse, so all is good.
Unless me talking about
it causes Murphy's Law to rise again...
Your end comment is what I would say all too often. Wish those symbols would come out of my mouth instead....but working on being "nicer"..haha.
Keep us posted as to how you're doing.
