Should I invest in some OTC anti-diarrhea medicine?
It's worth looking around for generic or cheaper versions, with the same ingredients as Imodium. I use a lot of the stuff and, here in Australia, I get a tablet version called "Diareze"which is much cheaper.

Fissures are a literal pain in the ass today. I expected this what with deciding to eat several foods in the past 48 hours that I generally avoid/ save for special occasions. Smart move was to stick to one, but I'm all in when it comes to life soo... yeah and now I'm just feeling sassy about it. But the kicker is... when the fissures are active I get to bump up my greenery/ fiber a bit until they settle.

Sending support and all that good stuff your way Christi <3

Last couple days have been, erratic. Met with doc Monday and am thinking of remission as a legit potential for my future for the first time in ages. Surgery as a possibility for treating is officially, completely back off the table and I have been riding that high all week. Its a bit unnerving to allow all that hope back in, I don't want to be closer then I've ever been just to see it slip back away but I'm excited for the possibility too.

Getting to see my partner's reaction to hearing excellent medical news for the first time in the 7 years he has known me for - just no words for it other then gratitude and pure joy. I am so thankful for him and his level head, cuz I know mine has been scrambled ever since Monday as I'm trying to process this possibility as a part of my reality.

Long week and feeling it. I have an appointment next week and I need to speak to my doctor regarding my fistula. It's painful and gross. When I asked for a prescription cream the last time he refused. Why I have no idea, but I'm going to push for it this time. The OTC stuff just irritates everything and makes it worse.
