My day started a little bad, some insomnia that woke me up at 2am. I had to take an extremely difficult licensing exam for my profession today, so I was extremely anxious anyway. Plus I'm taking prednisone which cuts back on my sleep. But after calming my nerves this morning, I took a pretty large pred dose for me, 30mg, plus an Immodium, because this exam was going to take anywhere from 5 to 8 hours, and I didn't need to have the runs all day. I did have them for a copule of hours this morning, but after the Immodium, things dried up. I made it through my exam, and am feeling pretty good, although I'm pretty sleepy. Got some errands done after the test, treated myself to an early dinner out (bacon cheeseburger and fries), and still no stomach rumblings. I hate prednisone, but I tell ya, that stuff works wonders for my digestive system!
