You have what???….My journey with UC

Constant signs…

And CONSTIpation is an early sign of a flare for me… its like a gremlin inside making gnarley noises. Nothing like a quiet meeting and the gremlin says hi.   It’s a really annoying bloating gas pain thats difficult to relieve.  Its a very slow process of increased symptoms. The slight increase of mucas shows up etc and I digress. I could be just so in tune now after 10 plus years but you would think I could just nip this in the butt. (no pun intended)  

But todays internet search was “UC Constipation”. I found an article specifically relating  constipation and how it can exasperate colitis especially those with left sided.  It was like it was speaking directly too me.  I’ll try any new approach to wave off a full flare.  Let the food and water intake diary begin…. again : )

          Flares are not old friends you want you keep in touch with. I don’t want to stay up late with you nor do I want to hear your morning chatter.  By now I can recognize stomach signals of whats to possibly come. Can I block you Mr Flare like on FB? Lets not be besties….
