Never again (well certainly not while I battle with this condition) will I willingly offer to take my 3 amazing grandchildren for the week again! (2 under 2 years and a 3 year old). I managed to avoid them whilst they shared Scarlet fever and then chicken pox, but one of them was still harbouring some lurgy or another which has hit me like a ton of bricks.
Coupled with this was a day so busy that I think I forgot to take my meds inc 10mg pred, felt increasingly worse as the day went on with the familiar joint and muscle aches but was totally floored the following morning, extremes of hot/cold shivering uncontrollably etc, took att my tabs at 5am ate a banana and crawled back to bed and felt slightly more human by 8am.
5 days on, the little darlings have gone home but I am still coughing, achy and generally knackered. I also temporarily have taken an extra 5mg at night just to give me a chace of not feeling quite so bad in the morning, dont know if this was the right thing to do or not.
Next time I think I might have missed a dose, I will simply believe that i have and take another, the effects of 20mg must be better than the effects of 0mg!
