It has been a very difficult road for me but have been doing well and hope to stay this way for as long as possible. I had a nightmare the other night.... that I had blood on my poop again. Even though it was a bad dream, it still affected me and I had a tough day.
However, most of the time I feel fabulous and work out a lot. Got some new clothes in a smaller size and I just downloaded the couch to 5k app and started yesterday. I am going to sign up for a 5k run : )
Get my remicade tomorrow. The Dr's office I go to moved to a brand new office and they now have portable DVD players for the infusion room but only a couple of movies. I bought Stepbrothers, MIB 2 (didn't realize it was not the first one till I got home) and The Great Outdoors for $5 each at Walmart. Going to donate those so other people can watch something and pick up one and leave it there each time I go.
Just wanted to post an update and say thanks to everyone that has been there for me on that emotional roller coaster. I don't stop by too much any more but hope there is at least one person that I might help so I peek from time to time.
UC Pancolitis: dx'd 2000; Remicade since 4/25/11, every 8 weeks. Kidney Disease (Minimal Change Disease): dx'd 2007 caused by 5ASA's (thank you sulfsalazine, lialda and asacol). Current meds: Remicade & prenatal vitamin. I feel better than I have in years being off the ton of medication I was on before.
