I forgot to mention that I am back on the Prednisone again: ummm lovely stuff it is too!
For those of you who don't know, when I was first diagnosed my doctor put me onto Pentasa and Predisone: with the predisone tapering off a week or two later... Anyways, so after my little incident last week, he put me back on it!
This time I have been put on a higher dose, and the side effects are way worse: tiredness, dizziness, nausea, forgetfulness, mixed with vagueness and confusion... Very, very bad...Everyone has noticed which makes it worse...
I think my biggest thing about this disease is the lack of control it curtails: I am not in control of my own body anymore: and it's driving me nuts: like I have said before on this blog, my body has always been my only area of absolute control... and when I couldn't control anything else about my life, I could control my body...And this disease has now taken that control away from me, and it freaks me out more than I would like to say: or for that matter, admit! The same goes for my infertility issues: the whole lack of control thing drives me insane...grrr...
But anyways, not much I can do about it!
