Good evening to all. Here I am,,awake again. Here's the latest. I am finally tapering the prednisone on down. I take 20mg one day then 10mg the next. My pain is trying its best to predcome back. I really would like to get off the pred!!! Just like I know all of you would like to come off it also. I still am on 50mg Imuran daily. I see the doc again on 12-11. Not long. My eyes have also gotten really bad. I got new glasses just in Sept. Now, already I can barely see out of the right eye, the left is just not quite as bad. It is sooo frustrating, I do alot of crafts, I like to read, I can barely even see the comp. screen!!!! Ughhhhhh!!!!!  Do any of you find that (on the meds (pred mayby?)) you TALK lots and lots???? I can't seem to shut my mouth!! lol lol  My moods are horrible, my hubby is soooo tired of me I'm sure. He acts it sometimes anyway, and I still can't shut up!  My kids just decide it's time to go home when they're tired of hearing me prattle on.  My goodness!!!  I'm tired of hearing me prattle on!!!!! Last nite, I finally went off to sleep about 2am, had to get up at 6:30am. The only morning I could have slept late, cause I was sleeping, and gooooooodddd!!!!! We gave my youngest dau. a baby shower, it was at 11am, so I had to get up early to finish up.  The shower was great. Now, she and her hubby have had to go to the birthing center to have her checked out, she has had contractions since 4 mths preg. They finally put her on meds to stop them, they are not working now, she is dilated 1 as of last week, her baby isn't due til Jan 28 so she is just at 32 weeks. If we could just keep that baby in there cooking til Christmass!! lol lol Her first one, asleep as we speak in my bed!! is 2 yrs, he was a 33 week baby, he was sick awhile, but is fine now.  All Boy!!!  I'm waiting on the phone to ring!!! I may have to drive 50 miles to the hosp tonite (it is 11pm here). Just a medicated mom worrying!!! Another dau (adopted) had to have emergency surg today for a block from kidney to bladder, a stone. I've already been to the hosp once!!! She if fine, be home tom. Hey there TN girl, I'm a TN girl myself.  Feel free to email me!!!  Do ya have a good GI doc in TN?  To any of you, My GI told me that he would prob keep me on 10mg of pred indefinetly.  Is that normal or right or is that a low enough dose to stop some of these blasted side effects??? My balance is off, I stumble alot, does anyone else? I don't heal, I tore the knuckle on a finger the other week, it almost looks infected, hurts like blue blazes! Everytime I bend it, it opens back up!! I know, hubby says...don't bend it!! lol  It's the pointer finger, how do you do anything and not bend it??? lol lol lol For all you Christmas folks, I finally got all the decoratging done, wanted it done by the shower!! Now if I could just finish the shopping and at least think about the wrapping!!! ha ha ha hohoho!!!I do love Christmas. Being in TN, we don't get snow on Christmas often, but I sure do wish we would. Folks, I just need to talk to someone about my thoughts and feelings and how I feel like I'm ruining everything and everybody around me. My last post was about all the lessons I'd learned, now I feel so ignorant. Nothing learned cause I can't seem to make my mind shut up. Things I've not liked but accepted about my hubby all these years now irratate the heck all out of me!!! And I can get vocal about it. Not good. He told me the other nite that I was not a very good partner, I know he loves me, I love him, but, I don't know.  I'm sorry folks, I've rambled on and on and took up all this space for someone much sicker than me.  I'll hush now and wait on the phone to ring. Next post mayby I'll know when to hush!!  Thanks to you all,    granna

I know what your going through Granna, pred brings out a part of me that even I dont like . I cant stop my mind from racing or myself from racing to the fridge. All I want to do is eat and be nasty to people around me. I am lucky to have a wonderful wife that understands , but I still feel guilty for being mean to her. Tell your doc that he thinks you can take it forever only because he has never been on it. Hope you can get off of it soon..
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Hi Granna I am kind of glad that someone else can relate to the prattling on I talk alot too but at 50 that is alot .Once you get down you will feel better because going without sleep is hard on the mind.Prattle here all you want and H will get threw it. Hope the bun stays put but I guess sometimes they come when they have too,glad your shower for your dauh. went good. Maybe try putting something that will soften the area on that finger like an antibotics cream. Well let us know about that bun and sure hoping the little one does good. What an exciting Xmas with a baby on the way. Glad to have you here to talk to we all need a chat at times. We had our first snow storm here in Nova Scotia so spent yesterday digging out the boughs I put out on the step looked great. lol gail
