You have what???….My journey with UC

Keeping in check…

…How good days never should be taken for granted. A quick hike in the woods on this crisp Dec morning. Though my bladder said I should have gone before I started…lol… but whose complaining? Happy Sunday to all.

Winging It

Knowing the window of time between your first cup of joe and getting on the plane. Traveling doesn’t always allow me to be on “schedule”… especially for a 7 am flight…I accept that more times than not I have to just wing it and keep my fingers crossed all goes well.

Soup Season My Friend Has Arrived

Its official! Soup Season has arrived : )

I have such a close relationship with soup. Like today, on a chilly fall Sunday, just making homemade soup in the kitchen I find comfort. Even from a can, soup has always been my best friend in the lowest of IBD days. There is something so healing about a bowl a soup. Today Asiago cheese : )

Humira hang on tight!

Every new med is like a new train ride, never sure where it will take me but I’m willing to go for the ride. The Humira train took 3 months to kick in with the help of prednisone. I won’t call a victory unless I can make it a full year. Im still leery of this medication but this train ride so far has been a good one. Its not to say there haven’t been bumps but Im gonna hang on tight! : )

Thats Not What I Thought I ordered…

You think you are ordering a rather plain dish and you get the fancy one. It looks amazing, it will taste good but it will not come out good. The fact is my digestive system hates meals that are mixed with creative sauces and unusual combinations. Troubles of work travel… #fancyhalibut

When the car in front of you drives too slow…

…and all you want to do is push them out of the way to race home & take care of business! 

4 months on Humira, 2 months with really good results. I’m trying to bring back a normal social life but I think my guts are saying not so fast!  

Traveling lots this month for work, lets see how this goes.

Humira – Just Keep Swimming 🐟

Humira for me is still up for debate if its working. 

🔘 Did I see immediate results? – No

🔘 6 weeks mark – Slight improvement . I stopped all other meds (6mp, allopurinol, & entocort) – I added prednisone

🔘 8 weeks mark – I texted my Dr really good results being seen. 

Fingers crossed this combo kicks it.  Even if this is a brief period of Prednisone high, I’ll take the relief and the journey to remission continues.  Dory sums it up well – Just Keep Swimming!

Its not always easy to travel when your in a flare. After 14 years of this disease, my confidense to handle the tougher days is so much better. I am beyond thankful.  💛
