Can you believe I’m still feeling ill and getting worse. I think my Crohn’s is in full flare. I hate this. The week before last I spent the majority of the week, day and night, lying on the couch. That’s how sick I was.
Then last Saturday evening I suddenly felt a lot better – for about 36 hours. Of course I chose that time to get a lot of gardening work done and probably over did it so I slowly went downhill again over the week and by Friday I was back to being a couch potato again.
Yesterday was the worst. I have lots of meds that I take and some of them are pretty heavy duty pain meds. One of the pain meds I take twice a day as it’s a long acting pain medication. Two of the others are faster acting and I can take them when I’m having bad pain that needs immediate control. Well .. I almost never take the short acting pain medication during the day. The worst of my pain is in the evening and through the night.
Yesterday however my pain was so bad that I ended up having two percocets through the day on top of my long acting pain meds. I never do that!
Today is a bit better. Maybe I got on top of the pain again. I don’t know. All I know is that I can’t take much more of this constant yoyo’ing back and forth between tolerable pain and unbearable pain.
