I have a fever(!), I did not allow my body the rest it needed because I was too manic to sit still, It’s Sunday-not so fun-day, and I discovered a rash on my arms and feet.
I should have gone to bed after finding the rash but I diagnosed myself with lupus instead! I’ll just go to bed next time.
Day 39: This morning I was lethargic, almost depressed, then I was manic, ready to do anything, but as I am writing this I am tired.
Falling asleep has gotten harder. My body wants to go, go, go! Since I could not sleep last night, I decided to look up prednisone struggles.
Moon face- I am not alone in that struggle!
Weight gain- 10 extra pounds appeared on my body in a week!
Mood swings- I am a fiery bitch half the time and depressed, happy, manic, and paranoid the other half.
My teeth have been sensitive to everything. Drinking anything hot or cold without a straw causes a horrible ache; I blame prednisone.
My boy…friend is wary of me and my hysteria. He gets to experience most of my crazy because I love him. He’s a lucky guy.
I have more to say about prednisone and its effects, but the crazy is too strong in me right now. A better day will come
