I couldn't do it without my hubby. Tonight after seeing all the blood I just couldn't emotionally function very well so I went upstairs and hid in my room while Hubby did dinner and bedtime.
The one good thing about the prednisone stopping working is that it was very obvious when it stopped; I didn't have to wait a long time to figure it out. I suddenly had the terrible symptoms that everyone talks about (that I had never experienced, like fever, sweats, etc, while experiencing NO relief from the UC symptoms) so then it was on to the next thing.
A LOT of people I know personally do really well with prednisone/enemas/biologics over the long term. The people who have no problems any more, of course, don't usually come to forums, so everyone here self-selects as being the "difficult" ones, LOL. So I try to remember that a lot of people have lasting success, and I just have to find what works for me.... doesn't help on days like these but on other days I'm more optimistic!
Awww, I'm glad you have him to help at least.
Yeah, definitely, I try to keep all that in mind as well. Hang in there.
