I've been having a strange/nice time of it lately! Rheumy was right and steroids don't half have their place. I should probably award a gold star to my innards which have accepted the rise from 10 to 15 meth weekly without question along with 60mg daily of steroid.
Within a few hours of taking them I suddenly felt much lighter in my mood. I had no idea that I had been using so much emotional energy just to get about but suddenly it felt like someone had lifted the window blind and let the sunshine back into the room. Previously I could feel happy and say I was happy but my facial expression wasn't really conveying that. Now I can smile and laugh again. OH is over the moon as we were only thinking about the physical aspect of the steroids.
The inflammation in my knees has gone and my knees are normal size. I can move and dress and shower and go up and down stairs with no pain and at a moderate speed.
Downside, I have to listen more carefully for the signs I'm overdoing things and have been caught out twice with that. Also, on Thursday I have to drop straight from 60daily to 40 daily. How will that go, I wonder?
In the meantime I'm enjoying this respite and will just have to cross my fingers that next weeks drop in doseage won't put me back to square one.
(Hopefully I'll not be here whinging next week!)
