Thanks Barb and Des, I will get those numbers out as soon as I get them. Hopefully the send me everything not just a little note teling me good or bad. Otherwise I'll have to go to the doctor and get all my #'s It explains why I have been craving peanut butter and liver! LOL. Barb I think I'd been ok giving myself a shot in my fat thighs or somthing if it comes to that. It would diffinently be better than feeling like garbage. I'm finding myself having to increase my pred just to function anymore. They doctor said it would be ok to do that on the rough days. Des thanks for the heads up on the tiny pills. I still think I got a little room left for that LOL

thanks again ladies

Just jumping in with some knowledge on B-12...
People with autoimmune disease can, and oftentimes do, have absorption problems. If you take OTC B-12, make sure you take it sublingual (dissolves under the tongue), instead of in swallowed pill form.
I just informed my mom of this, as she is B-12 deficient; however, her doctors have never told her to take it sublingually. Some of the simplist things go by the wayside by these doctors!
Actually I was just setting here looking at the paper I got in the mail. Of course they didn't bother sending me all my labs. Just a note saying b12 236. Would like you to take b12 supplement. That's the paper I've waited for days for. . from what I have seen on the internet 236 is within the normal range. So I'm not sure why I need supplements.
