going to see my Kidney Dr. today and I am really hoping for good news, and I realized that I am on the verge of bawling my eyes out if I don't hear good news. Luckily my husband is going w/me today and I will prep him to ask the questions in my notebook but I don't want to sit there w/my eyes as red as tomatoes w/snot coming out my nose. I have carefully thought about what I want to say whichever way my lab results come back as.
Can anyone help me not cry, any suggesstions on how you handle it? Sometimes I try to dig my nails into my palms but that only holds back the tears for a minute or two.
Should I call the Dr.'s office and explain that if they tell me on my way there then I should be all done crying by the time I see the Dr.........or is that insane? (plus am on 40mg of pred...my moods have been pretty stable but it is hard to keep them that way).
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
