well, i actually have been in a complete remission since sunday night (9th). ever since i did the landmark forum. (www.landmarkeducation.com)
cuz all that day and the days before and actually the whole year up til then i had major bleeding and diarrhea and cramping and pain.
it just stopped all of a sudden.
not a single UC symptom since... so this hot flash i thought might have been due to coming off the drugs. (pred + endone).
it went away when i went to the toilet. but no D. just regular formed stools. (like a normal person for the first time in a year)
i might be constipated a little bit (pain meds), but it always ends up coming out and i tell ya, there is lots of it. i think i lose 4 lbs every time i go poo this last week and a half. i dont know where its all coming from either.
fully formed and smelly LOL!
maybe i just had to go really bad.
or maybe its the meds.
or maybe its....
who bloody knows anymore with the way ive been feeling lately.
i really do hate side effects. (the shakes are driving me insane)
