Bernadette: I am so sorry that you are having to go thru all of this. It's just not fair! I know how much you hate the thought of gaining more weight but try and remember that it will put this disease in remission. Just think, you will be all finished w/ it by December!!!!! We are all here for you. Let us help you get thru these next six months. Hope that the body aches subside soon. Do hot baths help at all?
Sending lots of gentle hugs...
Kathy, Chantry & Ellen
Thanks for the well wishes! So for the Prednisone has not been too bad, no weight gain and more energy. The only downfall to the energy is not being able to sleep at night. I have a tough time going to sleep but sleep well after that. My aches have all but gone away YEAH! This is the first time in years that I don't ache like a 90 year old. I played competitive sports up until I was 40 so my body has been overworked for years.
My hair has finally grown out....I can't decide if I should let it grow or keep it short. All I do now to get ready is put gel in it because of the curl. I colored it last night back to my normal red instead of all of that grey. I have twice as much grey as I did before loosing it.
Happy 4th to all of you.
