thanks guys, i knew someone here would understand. right now we are trying 5 mg a week till i get to 20, then 2.5 a week, hopefully ill be able to go that fast. i havent in the past but im hopeful. and i cant freakin wait to go to sleep. REAL sleep and not the kind that you have to lay there for 5 hours and you pass out from sheer exhaustion or the kind where you dont sleep for 2 entire nights and cant get outta bed. and ill be so happy when my fat face is gone! :) it has messed with my bipolar and had to go up on some meds but hopefully thatll level out. the night sweats suck too, as if im not uncomfortable enough!
ok second rant over :)
I'm there with you. Once I got under 30mg the night sweats got better. But I'm down to 20mg as of last Friday, and I feel like someone beat me with a stick. I was falling asleep at 8pm last night, but I couldn't go to bed because it was too early to take my last round of pills. All I've wanted, all day long, is to crawl back in bed, pull the covers over my head, and sleep. And it's only Monday. I still have to make it through four more days of work before I can sleep all weekend.
I had an appointment with my GI today, and he said that part of the reason I'm so tired is the 10 lbs I've put on since going back on Pred. He wants me to lose them again. How exactly would you like me to do that? I can barely make it through my work day as it is. There's nothing left in me for exercise. I'm trying to be careful, but I'm hungry ALL THE TIME. So I guess those extra 10 lbs are just going to have to weigh me down for a little while longer.
