Two week updated on LDN

Hello everyone. Sorry about the delay and not posting a week one update. So yesterday was my second week on LDN. I'll start from last week. The first night I took LDN, I was sleepless, but I believe that might have just been mental. I did have vivid dreams for a few nights which was pretty cool. Most of them weren't the best dreams though. Like the world ending and stuff or seeing a bunch of black bears. I don't know why. Anyway, those dreams lasted a few days then stopped.
So on to the progress so far. I'm going to rate my improvement from a 1-10 scale. 1 being minimal improvement to 10 being significant improvement. Right now after all is said and done, I'd rate my improvement at 1.5. I'm still have bloody stools and urgency. but I don't go to the bathroom as often. My fistula is still bothering me a lot. I have a seton stitch, but the fistula still hurts. I feel like it doesn't leak enough because there's still some infection in there and it's painful.
I know LDN has been known to give you ups and down or you get worse before you get better. I really hope that's my case. I'm not going to give up on LDN for a while, probably around 10 more weeks. Hopefully by then, it'll start to work.
I know this update isn't very long, but I started summer classes on Monday and I got a husky puppy, so I've been very busy lately. I'll keep everyone updated when I have a breakthrough or if I get worse.
