This inflammatory bowel thing is not as advertised. When I was first diagnosed, my GI doc was relieved that we finally figger’d it out, and he also said it’s mild and we shouldn’t have any trouble treating it. Sweet, I thought. I’ll take that asacol and entocort and life will go back to normal. Even the statistics were reassuring. Since I was diagnosed as an adult, it would most likely run a more benign course.
I do believe I’ve unintentionally gone out of my way to prove that I’m a huge paradoxical pain in the ass. I went from zero to plaid in no time.
I’m tons of fun for doctors who like a challenge.
At least someone is having fun, right? When I was diagnosed with AIH, I started imuran and 4 weeks of Prednisone. That on top of the biologic bitch-slapped crohn’s into a corner. I’ve been spending semi-normal human amounts of time in the bathroom, and have had slightly less pain.
Last week was it for the ‘roids (hooray), and it may be a self-fulfilling prophecy that I’m experiencing a rebound in symptoms. I mean, that happened awfully quick, didn’t it? Maybe it’s the irritable bullshit syndrome, and not actual drumpf guts. One can only hope.
Irritating question of the day: “Are you guys gonna have kids?”
Oh, and HEY! It’s 4/20. “Smoke ’em if ya got ’em”
