I actually have 15 minutes to stop and let you all know how I am doing on 10 mg of Prednisone. I am okay but not great. After all the tests and no active disease showing up I am convinced that I need to be off of the steroids so I am going to suck it up and tapper down regardless of the fact my restroom visits have increased from about 2 a day to about 8 a day. I keep telling myself that it's stress from work, my family, and I really haven't taken time to rest like I should.
Funny story - we went roller skating this past weekend with the youth group. So much fun until I fell right on my behind! I jarred my already aching back so bad I felt it in my neck when I hit the ground. OUCH! So now my back, hips and even my ribcage hurt. But it was so much fun!!! But it reminded me I need more rest. I am way over doing it lately and need to back off the activities for a while. I am convinced rest will settle down whatever I have going on in my belly. At least I hope so. That is what I am telling myself anyway.
My stomach hasn't been hurting a whole lot lately. Just a few twinges every now and then. And the only headaches I am having I am sure are from the ever changing weather in lovely Ohio. One day it's snowing and the next day it's 70 degrees. That would give anyone a headache.
I see Dr. GI next Thursday so hopefully he will take me down to 5 mg and I can stop using the steroids as an excuse to over eat and try to get rid of the extra weight I have gained. And let me tell you - I am ready to be rid of it!!!
