This past month I've had a minor flare. Thought I needed some help with meds to help it get back on track. Tried the same thing last year with a similar flare. I ended up not using medicine and got over the flare by itself with using just my normal meds. This year same thing. Tried meds which didn't help, just had to wait for my time of the month and now it's almost gone. I think that is really weird, but now I know for next year what I have to do.

To me I just think this UC has a mind of its own. So far only 2 kinds of medicine has worked for me, that's humira and Imuran. I've been off Imuran since January, and have been doing fine, then a minor blip and still functioning fine with the excpetion of the blood, but it's going away. SO HAPPY.
