<RANT>

Let me start off by saying $@#*!@#$&*

Just finishing my 3-week taper and I got hit with a STOMACH BUG and ended up going to the ER for dehydration and nausea meds. I have never felt so sick in my life.

Feeling much better now, and the nausea is gone, BUT, bleeding has resumed. It's only been a couple of days, but it looks like that tummy bug has kick-started another flare (or rudely awakened an existing one). So, called the doc today, and I'm trying another 3-weeks of pred to see if I can feel better and stay feeling better.

There's always something.

I thought the first round had done the trick. Dang, stinkin', cursed tummy bug.

Knowing my luck, I'm going to get all manner of prednisone side-effects now.

Oh how ranting feels good.
