    Vegetable ideas/recipes

    Hey all, I was bad and went off of my diet so now I need to restart it. Anyone have any good ideas for easily digested vegetables? It's been a minute since I've had to start from scratch like this and the first time I'm doing it completely on my own. I still have my book and I do have a SCD...

    As some of you know I had a baby recently in May. He is one of the loves of my life and happy to say that even though he was born small (5 lbs 3 oz) he has grown and healthy as a horse thus far, praise God! Unfortunately for me I have strayed on the diet and just got out of an eleven day...

    Stressing and requesting support

    So throughout my pregnancy it has been a bit of a struggle. I had a flare I was hospitalized for around 18 weeks and was on a decent dosage of steroids to get it down and then put on a low residue diet.

    TDAP Vaccine

    Sorry if this is in the wrong spot... Wasn't really sure where to put it. Anyways! Anyone have to get the TDAP vaccination/booster for whatever reason and have a bad reaction in terms of severe cramps and diarrhea? I looked on the CDC's website and they said it was possible. Like this was at...

    Prednisone stomach acid

    Hey guys! Recently I was brought to the hospital to get IV steroids to get out of a bad flare and since I'm pregnant it's the only thing I can really use right now since I have failed Remicade and Humira and Cimzia. But the problem with Prednisone and I is that every time I take it, it causes...

    Hey guys, For some reason I've been going through a bout of insomnia. What do you guys do to help get some sleep? So far I haven't had any luck unless I use medication for sleep and even then I don't get to sleep at times and I would rather not go that route if I don't have to. Suggestions?

    Omega 3 supplement

    Okay, so I've just gotten back to being good and taking my supplements and I think it would be really advantageous to take an Omega 3 fatty acid supplement because of the anti-inflammatory properties. However usually when I take these I have the worst belching ever because it wasn't a good...

    Your Experiences - Need to know

    Hi Guys, So after finding initial success with shots of Humira every two weeks I'm starting to get the feeling that it is no longer working for me. I'd love to up the shots to a weekly basis but my insurance won't cover it at the moment even though it's a great insurance policy. However I...

    Is this common?

    So my doctors are wanting to increase the dosage of my humira from a shot every two weeks to a shot every week. However I had to go off of humira for about a month now because I had an infection of some kind. We're certain that the infection is gone now and so since I had relapsed into a flare...

    An update on myself

    So I had posted that on Thursday I left for Gainsville, Florida to go and seek a second opinion on a treatment plan and what my options were since I felt like my current GI wasn't giving me the time of day and wasn't really going over all of the options with me. My appointment was today and I am...

    Ulcers in colon

    So I had been suffering from the prep, but when I looked at the pictures from the scope I was cleaner than last time and I took barely half the prep this time! 10oz of magnesium citrate and 6 dolculax pills. I already had barely anything in me though and I'm pretty small, so maybe that had...
