Just thought I'd write and try to give quick picture of how silly I've been over last week or so, which may or may not help others and ask for some advice where I go from here.
My daughter gets married in August and firstly I'd got it in my head that I'd like to get down to 10mg at that time ( I'm on 11 mg at the moment taking very slowly approach since Nov/ Dec after starting at 15mg) first mistake!! Can't set deadlines!
Two weeks ago I had got down to 11mg and was doing very well so decided to do one day at 10mg. Felt really well, fatigue much better and I think thought I was really back to normal, second mistake! So in that week I travelled to London to trail round shops with my daughter, offered to host and cook for a family get together of 13 that weekend and the following day it was my husband's birthday. I can hear people saying No you don't do that but I think I had just forgotten what it was like to feel really very unwell and up to this point had been very careful about not overdoing things and resting etc.
Consequently I have felt quite unwell, all my stupid fault I know, for the rest of last week and this weekend. I have had pains in my arms and my legs , but mostly a stingy feeling in my arms and around my eyes a little. A little bit like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted I did for the majority of last week really rest and this weekend but have still got pains a little.
Can I ask advice.Is it best just to continue really resting and see if inflammation subsides or should I up the dose ( really didn't want to do this , but my own stupid fault) Have been waiting to see if it does just get better on its own. Thanks for reading and support of this group.
