I know it was bad of me, but it is helping but at the same time I want to let them know. Why did I not do this in retrospect, I do not have a good answer, anyhow, now playing phone tag w/the Dr.
I need to be honest and just say, I upped my prednisone......rather than hoping he tells me to do what I have already done. I am so mad at myself, I should have just done it in the first place!!!!!
btw, I do want to seek a second opinion so I want to get all my ducks in a row and look like a good patient.
