Hey Christina, I like coming across threads like this. Even though I'm late to the game(as usual), it is nice to read over it and feel you go from your initial worries to making it this far. I'm sure you've got the determination to stay the course now. Well Done

Thanks Everyone

Dallies - thinking of you and Meg too

Really finding it hard now as I'm so near the finish line and yet still can't eat. It's an hourly struggle at times but I'm nearly done now....

Thinking of you, keep posting.

Dallies - I will definately not disappear and will keep you updated on my reintroduction of food

Dexky - my tummy has been okish, its hard to tell really cos i have had some quite bad days. I guess once I'm back on solids I will have a better idea...

Christina, you're gonna make it!! I must plead ignorance for a moment. What is the end goal here? That this will rest your gut into remission? That you clear all traces of food and then start a food journal?

ONE DAY TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wooooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! !!!!

Dexky - the end goal is to have given my bowel complete rest and the modulen also has an anti inflammatory ingredient that is non-steriodal so I may be able to have modulen in the future rather than steroids if it helps..

No need for me to do food journal. I am reintroducing food gradually as my body hasnt had to process anything for 6 weeks so it can be painful when you start if you dont start carefully. Food does not tend to trigger my crohn's, unless i am already in a flare. My trigger is stress, which I find harder to avoid than certain foods - ho hum! Anyway will be good to see how my body copes with food after this long and boy am I looking forward to my first cup of tea

Last Day!!!!

Aww you lot made me cry happy tears!!!

I honestly don't know what I would have done without being able to offload to you guys. I feel so lucky to have been able to share this journey with people who really understand.

I will tentatively step back into the world of food tomorrow

SO MUCH LOVE AND THANKS TO YOU ALL!!
