Hello Everybody and a happy Easter to you all.
I have not posted for awhile but have tried to continue reading on the site when possible. This is due to the amount of things recently that have affected me and just really reduced my motivation for some things.
My last post I think was when I reduced to I think 5 mg Prednisolone at the end of December. I have been reducing slowly and now just on alternate days of 4 and 3 mg. apart from the initial withdrawal aches, not too bad. My concern is ongoing stress.
Apart from working (3 long days), there has been family ill health and one of my good friends died a few weeks ago, also my son in law’s father also died in Frebruary. I counted approximately 5 -6 things in succession. Felt a bit low but got on with things. No motivation for exercise (unusual for me as I was a gym person before diagnosis).
It is today looking like my granddaughter may have chicken pox and I have been looking after her. I was told previously to contact GP if this happens but wondered if it is still an emergency as I am only on low dose pred. I think I have had CP as a teenager. Also had some slight left sided dizziness, spacey feeling but think my ear maybe blocked so putting oil in it.
Sorry about the rambling. My main concern is about chicken pox but does other people feel emotional and demotivated with events. I am usually a very resilient person.
