Overall, Christine, feeling better. Going off the 6 MP made me feel much better - less nausea, sweating, etc. Tapering prednisone has given me back some better sleep but I always had trouble sleeping. Xanax is my salvation with anxiety and sleeping. I only take 1/2 every 4 to 6 hours but it works.
I hate doing the rectal meds but have to keep remembering how I felt before UC!!! The Cortifoam looks like it will be easier to use - hope so! I am still seeing blood but not every day like before. Less urgency and less discomfort left side. I know the Imodium is helping me most and will continue as I need it and remember it is not healing anything but helping me cope!
