Hi everyone. Getting to the stage again when I am feeling very sorry for myself. Been bad tempered and quite upset this last few days. I am at the stage now where I can hardly see because my eyes are watering most of the time and of course my eyesight has changed anyway. I can't bear to put my head down or turn my head sideways as my eyes feel like they are going to burst. I am going to make an appointment today with the optician.I am still on 35 mgs of pred. Have tried 3 times to come down but have had 3 head colds, one after the other, the last one being a killer, not just for me but also for my husband, so had to go go back to my present dose. Have got some two and a half preds from my GP so will try that when I feel ready, rather than a drop of 5. Just feel that life is not worth living at the moment. Our builders have finished now apart from hanging the doors after the carpets are fitted. The painting being done as I write. If that was all there was to it I would probably say that this time next week I would be feeling better, but EVERYTHING we have is in boxes at the moment, so a momentous job there before we can call our house our own. Sorry for the moaning - feel a tiny bit better for writing it down.
