I had to go to my GP last night to get my prescription. Could feel the panic coming as she went on about me getting off the Pred in a month or two at the most. (Consultant already took me off a few months ago with distrous results) I came out feeling very down and panicked. Last time they took me off it I was in a severely bad way. I only take 2 mg - I tried taking the 1mg but it didn't work out - how on earth do I get past this - she was going on about getting the bloods done - I KNOW they'll be ok - they've been ok since I started the Pred 18 months ago. I can't make her write the presctiption. Sorry - trying to keep this short. I mean I didn't want to go on it - I was in her office pleading with her to find something else at the time - now I can't get off the thing and she's talking about stopping it. How do you make them understand. I'm barely functioning as it is.
