I was in remission for the better part of 7 months. By remission I mean going to the bathroom once a day with a solid poo. I got lazy on my diet and my frequency increased and then eventually started seeing blood as well. I still considered it a mini-flare as my frequency never got above 5-6 times a day.
I currently live in Charlotte, NC with my wife and two daughters.
I am currently in the best place I have been in since being diagnosed with UC in February 2013. My frequency over the last month has been 3-4 times a day. My BM’s have been solid and the bathroom process is under control as opposed to resembling an Olympic sprint.
