Thank you for your post. I remember we started SCD almost at the same time but I gave up because I was still bleeding. Sometimes I still think about
doing the diet.
I still keep a food journal and as soon as I notice some food upset me, I write it down. Last time I ate rice it really gave me mucus :/ So I'm still on some sort of diet.
SCD hasn't helped me with the bleeding part but I noticed I was never as bloated.
mindoverbutter, did you take meds in combination to help with your flare? How long did it take you until bleeding subsided? What are your plans? Will you stay on SCD for another year and then slowly introduce illegal foods or just stay on it as long as possible?
