Dear Sweet Marge and all of you,
Thanks for coming to my rescue with your kind and supportive words. I don't know why we feel so tired when we come off the prednisone, but I plan to do some research on it. I am to 8.5. It's nothing for me to stay in bed for 12-16 hours a stretch, just gettting up to go to the bathroon and eat a bite. I have depression and that does not make things easier, plus we are having
I'm sorry your family is going through losing a loved one. It's got to be very difficut. I really do feel for you. And I know every one of you are suffering and struggling with illness, as well as possibly mental and emotional problems.
My 23 year old physically challenged daughter has come to live with us. She is having serious personal problems, and that stresses me. She has lived away from home for 5 years and is back now. It's a long stor, and doesn't seem to be getting any better.
I will close now.
Again, thanks for your love and support.
I'll write more later.
Trish, I'm sorry I am just now gettting back to you. I've had some presonal situations going on and that along with my health, both mental and physical, have rendered me practically mindless.
First, sorry to hear about your hubby suffering from depression. I know only too well what that is like. I have batteled it for over 25 years, off and on and it seems like more on than off.
I do see a regular psychiatrist and he has been working with me on medication dosages.The antidepressants I am taking do not seem to be working. I just wonder if anything will work with this withdraw or if I just have to go through it and get on the other side of it.
I sleep a lot, am fatiqued a lot, leg cramps, confusion, any lack or desire to go out, bath, etc.
IT's clinical depression. Iknow all the signs well. I worked in menal healh for year.
I just cannot seem to help myself. I just wish I could go to bed and not wake up. My fear is that this will not get better. I am down to 8mg of pred. about to drop to 71/2. I am supposed to stay there untill I see the hep. doctor later this month.
So much for my doom and gloom. I hope this finds eveyone certaintly better than Me. I'll beep lifting my head up. I know where my help comes from.
