I wouldn't try to be like me.
Well, I'm perfect and all, so maybe you should be (BIG HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!) :)
Anway, just remember that I seem to be one of the very, very, very lucky ones when it comes to controlling UC. I don't have to watch my diet all that carefully (I do limit processed foods and strictly avoid MSG and artificial sweetners, but I ate like that pre-UC) and have been in a really solid remission for over two years now. Sure, I had that perianal abscess and am now hoping my fistula heals well, but none of that seems to be really related to UC, other than the enema tip maybe causing the abscess in the first place. I really do wish that everyone on this board had the same luck that I do.
However, like you said, nobody can predict the future. I may slide into a horrible flare over the next few months and you might be able to reach the "magic" twice a week mark with enemas.
