Ulcerative Colitis Diary: Week Ten On Prednisolone

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on March 29, 2011

Green = How well I feel 1 being the best and 10 being the worse.

Blue = Depression. Again, on a scale as above.

Treatment for: Ulcerative Colitis.

Medication, Direction and Course as follows:

Prednisolone : Take four One 5mg Tablet(s) daily for four weeks [Now six weeks], then cut down by one tablet a week each week over the next four [Now three] weeks. Untill I see the specialists in April 2011.

Day 64 Tue 22nd March 2011:  Woke up at 8:50am after going to sleep at 4:00am. Back still sore and I feel shitty, I don’t want to do anything but sleep or stare in to space. It’s moods like this that worry me for when I start studying! I just wont be able to take anything in fully because it.

Went to sleep for a few hours because I felt tired and pissed off. Back getting better though) (2/10) (6/10)

Day 65 Wed 23rd March 2011: Went to the toilet twice, it’s all normal. Back is very much better, will start doing the back strengthening tomorrow. Mood still low-ish, but better than yesterday. (2/10) (5/10)

Day 66 Thu 24th March 2011: Didn’t sleep well last night, I lost count of how many times I woke up. I went to bed early but wound myself up when the OCD/T started. It’s going to be one of those days where I don’t want to be around anyone.

Everything else is normal. (2/10) (7/10)

Day 67 Fri 25th March 2011: Low mood again since I woke up. Spent most the day in my room reading.

UC still at bay and everything is normal. I say normal, it isn’t quite 100%, I still have the tiredness you get with UC and the occasional cramp and pain. (2/10) (7/10)

Day 68 Sat 26th March 2011: UC still at bay, toilet visit fine.

I’ve been doing some exercises for my back and warming up the rest of my body for when I start proper exercise. You know you’re fat and out-of-shape when you have to do warm-up exercises for your warm-up exercises, a week in advance!

Mood still low. (2/10) (8/10)

Day 69 Sun 27th March 2011: Despite the fact I went to bed early, 11:30pm, and woke up at 9am, I still feel tired! I think the tiredness is more the result of low-mood than UC. Still feel low.

Toilet visit was normal! Prednisolone do work for me! Which is a good thing, so good to have normal toilet visits! (2/10) (7/10)

Day 70 Mon 28th March 2011: Woke up late after going to bed late, I’m not 100% sure but I think my tiredness is mostly due to low-mood.

Toilet visit was fine!

Mood still low.

The green readings will remain 2/10 untill I can be sure the UC is not causing the tiredness. (2/10) (6/10)

    Hi Phil! 🙂

    Comment #2!!! LoL!!!

    I know what you mean – I have sod all to do apart from routine chores so I tend to sleep late, but the meds make it harder and harder to get up until the sleep pattern flips and suddenly I’m on the graveyard shift…

    Once you’re on the course you’ll do much better – I bet you liven things up for them!!! LoL!!!

    Yeah I remember Punk – I remember how the TV interviewer kept trying to get one of the groups to swear on TV – but Goths I don’t really know that much about.

    Those I’ve met are lovely people and great to get on with, but on South Park the Goth Kids were all depressed and suicidal!!!

    Shows how people’s views are soooo wrong!!!

    I got to the Co-Op at 7am and June was on duty, so I was on my best behaviour!!! LoL!!!

    The joints are improving – a good reason to lose weight – and I’m feeling a bit more cheerful as getting fat was really depressing.

    They told me the meds meant I couldn’t lose weight – shows what ‘they’ know…

    Have a good one Phil!!!

    God Bless!


    • Hey man! 🙂

      You should go to the local Tesco, if it is close enough, or maybe even get it from the Co-Op, assuming it’s a large shop?

      Hey, have a go at changing ya Meds, see what things are like, but, if the new ones are no good for you you’re most likely better off on the old. You don’t want to lose your mind for the sake of a hard-on! lol

      Army surplus I will order from, but I’ll wait and see if I lose some weight first!

      Even if I confront the cause of anxiety it doesn’t help, I have to let it disapate on its own, it’s nearly always there to some degree. Fucking annoying. As for the OCD, that’s just as bad and can be worse, however, I think it is that what helps drive the OCD.

      Whether he’s shitting bricks or not, he’ll surive it and live, those poor bastards at the center of it wont be so luckily if what we’ve been reading is true!

      I know, get rid of one group of tossers and another group emerge, it happens everwhere! It’s a matter for the community as a whole to tackle and for the Police to do their part too! Unfortunately it doesn’t always happen that way.

      I call it the ‘Night Shift’ hahaha. I’m sure it’ll normalise soon, So I’m not going to fight it. And yeh, I’m thinking my assignments will cause the Tutor to raise an eyebrow or two! lol

      Yeh, I remember the Punk think, it was Bill Grundy and the Sex Pistols! LOL!

      It was his own fault for being drunk and then goading them! hahaha

      I don’t victimise people for the way they dress, but I ask them why they do it and give my opinion on it, and um… some people don’t like that and view it as insulting them. That just isn’t the case! I’m open, honest and opinionated (don’t know if you noticed that lol) and I think it is a valid to be that way.

      Yeh, being a fatty can be depressing! lol But I know some people who are happy being fat, it may not be healthy but it’s totaly up to them, I don’t treat them any different because of it. I think it will do ya joints the world of good. And fuck the doctors, they aint always right!

      You have a good one too, Ian! Take care and have a nice evening! 🙂

    Hi Phil! 🙂

    Yup: About right!!! LoL!!!

    The only place I can get fruit at the moment is an Asian guy in the Arndale, but I’ve been to him twice and each time I came home I had at least three pieces of rotten fruit – we’re talking large mould patches here so no way was it an accident!!! 😦

    No wonder nobody wants to buy off him…

    Stud? Once I change my meds then maybe – Olanzapine shuts down the sex drive as a side-effect, but my doctor won’t change my meds…

    Hmmm… Army surplus sounds like a good idea – I used to wear them myself for years because I used to hunt rabbits on my granddads farm! 🙂

    I know what you mean about the anxiety – I get it myself, so I go to great lengths to avoid the cause…

    OCD However I have missed, but I know how it works – Hope you can find a way round it dude.

    I watched the report on the morning news – Glasgow and Oxford got readings, but minimal levels thank God.

    I agree about the difference between Momma Nature and Human Nature – the President of the electricity company has been hospitalised for high blood pressure and dizziness.

    To be honest he should be sh*tting bricks right about now!

    Yeah I forgot I’d told you! 🙂

    Knowing they are old enough to go to jail has slowed them up some, but as we get rid of one bunch of tossers another bunch take their place unfortunately…

    You have a great wednesday too my friend! 🙂

    God Bless!

    Hi Phil! 🙂

    Just got your comment, so thanks for the visit! 🙂

    I agree – I had no idea I was not eating enough, but I’ve upped my food intake with four slices of bread and butter – that’s 300 cals – two hot meals and a bowl of cereal at breakfast and before bed as well as two oranges per day.

    It’s a bugger because the meds make me constantly hungry, so I have to have a meal every four hours otherwise I’d miss one! 😦

    Try visiting Primark – I got most of my clothes from there and still wear them today – I even have drawers full of new stuff I have yet to wear!

    Oh Bugger – forgot your condition… Sorry. 😦

    Next best is buying stuff off the web – I used catalogues and they are far too expensive!!!

    Hmmm… Soon I shall be fit and healthy – and if I can get onto Abilify I’ll have a far better life!!!

    There is a sweet woman at the church who took a liking to me from the start and we get on great, but maybe because she’s so poorly sighted she’s registered blind!!!

    I like her a lot because she’s a very couragous woman and very independent, but I was reluctant to get involved due to my physical condition.

    Maybe now I can be a bit more confident!!! 🙂

    So the fallout has reached the UK?


    Yes, I too worry about what’s happening in Japan – these reactors were built to survive an 8.5 quake and a 5 metre tsunami, but what they got was a 9.0 and a 6 metre tsunami.

    Now it looks like the mess will affect Japan for decades.

    I agree about the heroes of Fukushima – they have put their live on the line and with inadequate equipment.

    One thing is for sure: Whoever was responsible for the design and protection of the reactors deserves to mop up the mess they made!!!

    I agree about the AK47 – one of our drug dealer’s runners tried to hold me at gunpoint, but I just called him a tosser and ignored him!!! LoL!!!

    So far I’ve had abuse and death threats in the street from the Mallinson brood, been held at knife point, gun point and had my windows smashed on a regular basis for two and a half years.

    These days the Mallinsons are regular patients at the homeless charity where Darren works, being treated for drug addiction – Sweet!!! LoL!!! 🙂

    Nowadays all is serene and I can relax knowing our druggies have to travel to get their drugs because the local dealers were all shopped by the locals!!!

    One of them ordered Darren’s car be trashed because his motor got scratched high up on the wing and Darren refused to pay for the damage because he hadn’t done it – or been capable of doing it because the damage was done by a white van.

    I really enjoyed watching as his home was raided and they put two dogs through the window!!! LoL!!!

    Have a great week dude – you deserve nothing but the best!!!

    God Bless!

    Sounds good my friend – you’re getting there, so relax and be happy!

    Yeah I know: Hard to when depressed, but you’ll get there!!!

    God Bless!!!
