Hi. I am on a high today as my ESR rate which was 36 when diagnosed Sept 2016. Was still 36 Dec 2016 has come back as 7 today. I know I will have to be careful with reduction of steroids. I have reduced from 15mg to 13mg since Sept. I was going to start the count down slow reduction for next mg. But really want to just try one more 1mg drop tomorrow. I have been to aqua fit twice a week and loving it even though being a large lady and even larger on steroids. So pleased I did. My husband makes me laugh as he is so pleased that i'm on this high even though he says he dosn't understand any of it. He is so supportive and has looked after me so well. I so wanted to share how i feel that even though I have had this a short time and so many of you have suffered for years and I am under no illusions about this horrible disease and that it could rear it's ugly head again. Just can't stop smiling today.
