1. I took my baby aspirin. 2. I took my last prednisone. I'm done! 3. I feel like I'm so boring to people I don't talk to all the time. "So what have you been up to?" And people mention trips and hobbies and. . . Then they ask ... Read more

1. ENT wants me to have a cardiac workup as he does not think that all my symptoms are due to prednisone. So despite not really thinking it is my heart, I was good and called the primary doc. They got me in to see him this afternoon. 2. ... Read more

1. Day 5 of loopy pills. I'm tapering down now so I'm much less loopy. I still like calling them my loopy pills though. 2. We saw a beautiful bald eagle soaring above. I wish I wasn't driving at the time and had to keep my eye (mostly)... Read more

1. Day 4 of loopy pills, or what are now droopy pills. No more energy from these pills, just fatigue. I wonder if they are burning off what adrenals I have left? 2. Stressful day - worked on taxes. We owe money. Money we don't reall... Read more

1. Day 3 of loopy pills. I feel better today because the doctor allowed me to up my diabetic meds. Prednisone messes with bloodsugars and that was making me feel pretty bad. 2. Took a walk at the mall with dh. I had to get him to sl... Read more

Day 2 of my loopy pills. I'm tired but I can't sleep. My brain is going a mile a minute but I can't think. I'm supposed to be doing the taxes. . . This is not good! (Sung to the tune of "I Feel Pretty") I feel loopy! Oh so loopy... Read more

1. Today has been a weird day. I am on the highest dose of prednisone for two days and then taper down. I am soooo tired and yet my mind is racing. My bloodsugars are not good and I know I probably made it worse by having pizza today. It wa... Read more

1. What I thought would be a monster day due to insomnia last night and an early and busy schedule, wasn't. Hey, I'll take it! 2. Ds17 asked if carne asada with homemade pico de gallo would be acceptable on our food plan. It is. He made... Read more

1. Ds17 and I started our 40/30/30 plan today. He liked his breakfast. He liked his lunch. He was gnawing his arm off at dinner! But that's because he had turned down 2/3 of the dinner. He did like the veggie/chicken skewers we made. I le... Read more

Happy Easter! 1. This morning at church the young people (including me! I'm young at heart) did special music. It went pretty well. 2. After church I barely made it home driving, I was so tired. Dh was even more tired than I wa... Read more

1. I guess I totally stuck my foot in it. I talked to my oldest sister today. We're the closest of all the siblings and are good friends. She was fishing for birthday wishes (which totally went over my head) and then had to come out and tell... Read more

1. Oops. My good/bad day streak ended. Unfortunately it ended with me having an even worse day :) (Yes, I'm smiling. You have to see even little bits of humor in all of this even if it is a bit dark.) 2. Today I waved the white flag, ... Read more
