I had a bit of a dip after the festivities and reluctantly considered upping from 8mg to 10mg pred as I seemed to be very lethargic and unenthusiastic, with headaches and general aches. However, yesterday I got busy organising myself into positive outcomes - had a first Bowen therapy session which saw me in bed at 9.30p.m. for a 9-hour sleep, rather better than the usual 5 or 6 hours! Today, feeling energised, I rang my GP for one more try at a referral for a Dexascan, having been refused several times. After a bad experience with AA I said I did not want to take bisphosphonates and would like the Adcal alternative (which has never been mentioned as an option) - hey presto! I am being referred for a scan - why didn't I hit on this idea before... anyway, feeling that gentle persistence (and a change of tactic) pays off. )
All the Bowen enthusiasts on this site, thank you for pointing me in this direction - such a great site for exchanging ideas and experiences. My mantra is: if you feel better, it works; and be glad!
