So currently it’s:
7:00am — Two mesalamine pills for my colitis and two snorts of corticosteroid for my hayfever
3:00am — Two mesalamine pills for my colitis
7:00pm — Two snorts of corticosteroid for my hayfever
Dinner — One multivitamin to make up for the foods I can’t eat due to colitis
11:00pm — Two mesalamine pills for my colitis and 20mg of cetirizine hydrochloride for my hayfever
I expect to be wearing adult diapers and using a walker any day now.
Allergies just plain suck. My sympathies.
Had you changed your diet a lot??
A little adjustment to diet change, mainly involving less insoluble fibre, and staying away from anything carbonated. And, oddly enough, more dairy.
I came across your blog through a google search. I was diagnosed with severe UC back in 2004 and put on Asacol. About 6 months later, after doing tons of research, I came across a book called “Breaking The Vicious Cycle” by Elaine Gottschall that recommends a Specific Carbohydrate Diet for the treatment of colitis, crohn’s, and other digestive disorders. A few months after going on the diet, I was med free and symptom free and have been ever since. I don’t know if you know about it, so I just thought I’d offer the info. I have info about the diet and my journey on my blog at http://www.comfytummy.com. All the best to you. :)
Thank you for sharing, I’ll be sure to check it out.
