I haven't been around for a while, but not because I've been healthy.... I've been working my butt off and getting my life back on track since filing for divorce.... I know Quincy.... FINALLY~!!
Anyhow, been flaring for over a year now, not horribly bad, mostly the usual I get, bleeding with 99 percent of BM's and sometimes some pain ans urgency. Lately the urgency and pain have increased so today I went back in for a flex sig.... Immediatly when the procedure began, my GI says.... "Well it's Not hemmies.. it's definitely your U/C... very angry tissue with pus pockets but thankfully it has not progressed any farther up my colon than the last time I had a scope done.... So he put me on Canasa 2 times daily and Apriso.... I have been down this medicinal road before but honestly, I have a hard time sticking to a routine medicine therapy, but this time I have no choice, I have to stick to it... I'm NEVER doing prednisone again (unless I'm on death's door) and for now Remicade is out since I had neurological complications from it 2 years ago... so cross your fingers peeps that I can stick to this and maybe someday find remission again.
On another note, I've found a new guy.... he's W O N D E R F U L.... Treats me like a queen and it's so weird to be treated nice that it almost weirded me out at first... My work is great and picking up, my little house is great and things are really starting to look up... now if I can just get my U/C to settle down... heheheeee...
Anyhow, I'll be back soon to update you all on my progress... don't pay attention to my sig, it's old and out of date. I will change it when I log in next time....
Love to everyone here~~~ MUAH~!!!!
