I saw your post in the cipro thread. I worry about me too, I think/hope I will be ok, I just want to get off prednisone......I don't even know if it's worth it for me to stay on it, I mean MCD wont kill me (most likely) maybe I can just live with it, I mean I have been for the past 7 years, what's another 50 years???? I feel that way but another part of me knows I need to get the MCD taken care of and I have been talking with other MCD & FSGS patients on a Nephrology board, so I know I am not alone and that it could be worse....though I keep on saying that to myself and worse things keep on happening, so maybe I should stop that? = )
I guess the only good thing so far, is I am learning what really matters in life and before I just let so many stupid things bother me and run my life and occupy my time and now that I don't, that part of it is nice and I don't know how/why I let things like that bother me but now they don't and I just want to be well, I know I will get there, I get down, but keep on picking myself back up.
