OMG.. I know.. I spoke to soon about
the "Not gaining weight" thing... It's hitting me now. I've gained about
3 or 4 lbs in the last week... EEEEEEKKKKK!!!! Oh well, as long as I can get this flare under control I don't really care about
the weight.. I think it's mostly water anyway. The ONE good thing is I can't stop doing things... I've never had this much energy and it's kinda nice.. I am concerned about
side effects though.. I'm only allowed one more week to get into a remission on this dose of Pred... OR else, then it's Remicade time... Or Humira.. I'm not sure which one would be better to try.. I'm nervous about
both of them... But also considering surgery, just in case... See, it's almost 11:30pm and I am sitting her posting (not a bad thing) and watcing Seinfeld and am WIDE awake since 5am this morning!!!! ARGH!!!!! The depressing part is my husband is sound asleep and I can't vacuum the house cause it'd wake him up for sure... LOLOL..
