Sorry I haven't been around in a little while. I went back to work (after being out of work on disability), and just have been very tired/busy trying to get back up to speed with things.
Anyways, I'm still on pred! Yep. And it dawned on me you guys would understand. It seems everyone in my life is telling me to go off of it at the moment. Yes, it does make me a bit moody, and sleep...um an interesting prospect. But I need it to breathe and move around (as I have inflammatory arthritis).
I THINK the plan is to taper off over the next few weeks, but I can't really tell as my Spring allergies are now starting to kick in, and I'm sitting here using my neb. So there we are.
Oh, and I got written up at work as I was setting up a family meeting between two doctors, a family, and several nursing staff. Apparently I should have communicated better, which of course I can in hind sight adjust how I communicated, but I don't think I really did anything wrong. But it makes me so frusterated sometimes! I'm doing the best I can with many health issues at the moment, and with being so very tired because of the pred. and just what I have...it's hard to know what to do sometimes. At least I know I'm doing everything I can do.
What do you do when pred. makes you ""a little off"" but you still have to communicate and work and not make your loved ones crazy? I've been on the stuff now for 6 months, so I hardly remember what life was like without pred. anyhow.
