Hi, Lion. I didn't know what some of those things were listed in your signature. Now I feel like I don't have any problems in that area! Do they know why you are having those problems? Is it related to the lupus, or something else entirely? Was it a previous post from you that I read where they haven't officially diagnosed you with lupus yet and you're having problems getting answers? Have you had those other problems for long or did they start when your meds started? I'm pretty sure my problems came from all the meds they put me on; during last year especially! Good luck with that appt. in Oct. Please check back and let me know what happens. Thanks for the added support about
my blood sugar!
I'm finally making some sense out of that glycemic index. It has a lot to do with portion size though. I will have my next follow-up with my rheumy toward the end of this month. He will probably begin trying to taper the prednisone some more regardless of whether my blood sugar has stabilized or not. I just dread the next drop because it was at 8.5mg when I had a pain in my chest that felt like a heart attack. He said it could have to do with my lung involvement. Something that sounded real professional about
this being connected to that and it could have to do with the pleurisy pains. ?Who knows? I did notice you're a mom, in your previous post. I just felt I couldn't say anymore because my last one was SO long. Just try to hang in there. I'm sure you're doing a great job with your daughter! As she grows up with you understanding what all you deal with, she will probably turn out to be very compassionate and caring. Just take it easy on yourself, children are able to cope and understand things a lot better than we think. Especially with your being so easy to understand. Take care,
