Hi Stacie, Hippi, and Debbie. I hope you ladies are having a good weekend. Yes I'm glad to be getting off the BP meds. I hope it stays ok. and the steroids are of course always best when they can set in a bottle unused. I do have to be real carful though as we all do when tapering off the stuff. I'm sure she will never let me off of it all together but normally I'm on 5mg. and it doesn't give me any side effects. Now that the weather is changing I can get out more without such a fear of my lungs getting worse.
Hippi, we do seem to run along the same lines don't we! LOL. From water retention to fudge cycles! Did they put you are a water pill?
Now if I could deal with the insomnia. I meant to ask the doctor about it but I forgot. Plus I'm not sure I really want to take another pill. I usually sleep fairly well but than I have one or two days in a row every couple of weeks when I can't sleep. That is the most miserable feeling to me. I'd rather be sick than tired from insomnia.
Thanks again for your love and your prayers, I'm putting on my night cap! love ya
