Hi Barbara, Lynnwood and Sharen,
Thankyou for talking to me. I really needed it. Barbara I think about you often. I hope you are doing well. I have been tested for Leukemia many times this last year. It's awful. I pray that your's goes away soon.
Today I have taken 24mg of prednisone and severe muscle aches are just about gone. And my fever is normal so far. It's amazing how fast it worked. I thought it would take a couple of days at least. I am still very fatigued but have this hyper feeling too. I want to do something busy but don't have the energy to really do it. I feel a little jittery. I am NOT sleepy and normally by now I would be in bed. I actually have finished 2 movies. I am amazed. I do feel strange though. Like I have drank too much coffee and cold medicine at the same time. But it's worth it so far. I was so miserable today that I was crying. Now I'm not crying but I am talking a lot. This is a wonderfully bad medication. My mind is racing too. And I am drinking so much water. Hope I am making sense. LOL. I was nervous about taking the prednisone. Now I'm just a little nervous.
