I went back to work today after a (somewhat) relaxing week off and I think I was mostly ok, but now I’m feeling terrible again; I’m rushing to the bathroom, having cramps and pains in my stomach and side, and I’m starting to feel really tired already. On top of that, my prescription isn’t at the pharmacy yet even though the doctors said it went on Monday so now I’m out of mercaptapurine. I know I’ll be ok without it for a couple of days (maybe) but I could really do with not missing too many doses. The hospital also want to do yet another flexi this week but they haven’t told me when yet. I’m not looking forward to it but if it means they can finally do something to stop this flare, then fine. I do not want Christmas to be ruined because of my stupid gut.
