Trying to get out of this flare has taken me longer than all my others so far and I have experienced diareah a couple of times (mostly recently) and ups and downs of good days and not so good days, though slowly the not so good days are getting better and further apart.
I'd like to say Colitis is like a box of chocolate's you never know what you are going to get but that sounds kind of gross (and it makes me laugh) so I say it anyway. Anyhoo, I hope you get out of this flare quickly.
I haven't taken steriods so I don't know the ups and downs of coming out of a flare.
All my best,
