Happy New Year everyone and here's hoping that 2019 will bring better health for everyone. I've been running through, and discarding new resolutions in my head. I've decided to try to stick with serenity prayer for now - the serenity to accept the the things I can, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference! Not sure how well I can do this though as I've already set my sights on getting down to 10mg as soon as I can. I've just started my next taper, from 11 to 10.5 and I'm trying to go a bit faster. I'm using a shortened version of the DSNS so I will go down over 2 weeks and then, all being well stay there for a week before starting on the way down to 10
Taking the amitriptyline for my Fibromyalgia has helped a lot and i have more energy than I had. Just after Christmas I walked half a mile down our road to visit a neighbour without any problems, coming back up was a bit more of a problem but just a few months ago i would have struggled to walk quarter of a mile without resting. I'm beginning to wonder if the PMR is getting better too. Is it something that gets better slowly? I've probably had it for at least two years so I suppose it's possible and I'll find out as I taper.
