So I have this love/hate relationship with Prednisone. I mostly hate it, but I can't deny that it DOES make me feel better. I've been on it now for 8 weeks and was tapering, but when I saw my GI on Monday he upped my daily dose back to 30 mg. and added 6 more weeks on it because I am still flaring and he started me on 6-MP, which of course, takes awhile to kick in.
In the mean time I have not one, but two different friends and their families traveling from another state to visit us next week - we are all high school friends that haven't seen one another in 4+ years. I am so upset that after so many years they are seeing a big fat sweaty moon faced hungry sleep deprived irritable ME!
Also, is anyone else transposing words/numbers when writing while on Pred? It's like I'm dyslexic - I can't copy down a phone number or address correctly!! And I keep dropping things!! Like I'm super clumsy!!!
Okay..............thanks for listening, you guys/gals are GR-8!!!
