Officially off Prednisone!!

Posted Sep 29 2008 9:08pm

I am now officially 5 days off of prednisone.  This evil beast.  Look up prednisone in google images and you’ll see loads of people looking like I do.  I’m not alone.  bloated, heavy, grumpy, big cheeks, crazy!! I went down super slow - beyond slow - which is what i’d recommend. after 5 mg I actually went down 1mg every 5 days. I’m already losing a bit of the moon face. amazing! Good way to do it after being on it for so long.  I tried faster but was a mess.

Prednisone Chemically

I have the flu (green snot and green cough) since I’m also on methotrexate - which supresses the immune system - it’s violent…now on antibiotics.  i did have to miss work today - but Ive been going strong tonight and today I went to look for glass frames with Jax. Things are pretty good. I will admit that it’s been a dry-dry few weeks sex-wise (since actual intercourse it would be a dry many months)… but we’re getting there. My cold and his cold are all too much for both of us right now. xmas-season is extremely hard on everyone. pharmacies in different cities, planes, trains, cards, odd beds, folks…

I did get dramatically depressed and then not depressed about the topic of being able to have kids. maybe it’s not in my cards. i can hardly stay well beyond 3 days - how would it be possible? A thought for another day. Happy New Year (we spent new years eve in a blanket ball on the couch with a box of tissues!) - Here’s to 2008     Sasha      …. PS: I’m bummed that This post: Pushing Him Against A Wall is no longer listed since I wrote it in early November- but still appropriate thoughts….
