Can't catch a break

So as many of you know,I've been battling something. I have urgency and a little cramping (though the big pain on my left has basically subsided). I had a little blood (usually a pinkish color, and not during every poop. Usually just 1 a day). The past 2 days, I've had bright red blood, a little more often. Maybe 3 or 4 poops (out of 12ish). I have external hemmoroids that bleed, but never that much blood. I'm starting to get worried. I will be calling my doctor first thing Monday morning. Hopefully I can get an appointment this week (instead of June 22). I NEED to get better, since I'm going to be away for 10 days in Israel starting July 12.

I had basic blood work done on Wednesday and on Friday got a call that everything was fine, except I was anemic (that explains my tiredness). I went on Friday for more blood work to see what the cause of the anemia is.

I'm not on any medication for my pouch right now, except VSL3 DS. I've been taking that daily.
I hate being sick. I'm missing a teacher certification test today because I just can't sit that long. Luckily, I can take it in the fall, though now I have to double up on my tests. On a happy note, for the third year, I am walking tonight at the Take Steps, Be Heard walk for Crohn's and Colitis.

Do you all still think it's cuffitis or pouchitis? I don't know what a fissure is, so I don't know if that's why there is so much blood?
