The numbness is continuing in my right foot, and some swelling now, too. The doctor has gotten me down to 2 prednisone a day, instead of 8...But I am not feeling as good as I was. Very tired all the time, and very sore tongue. Some days are better than others. The doctor has me off work for awhile, and has given me a sleeping pill called zopiclone. This pill has really helped with my sleepless nights. I just could not continue to work, when I wasn't sleeping at night. So, I am glad that has gotten better. I just hate taking so many drugs....Still on 2 plaquinal a day. I am also on new meds for urge incontinance....So many drugs, and they are carry side effects....I hate it.
I am worried about depression setting in, now I am off work, as I love my job working with special needs kids, and I miss the kids and the teachers so much. I am prone to depression and have been on Paxil for years.
But I just got a new puppy last week, a shitzu/cockapoo cross, and she is the love of my life....She is so good, and her and I sleep a lot through the day..She is truely a gift from God and has brought me so much joy the past week.
Sorry if I am babbling, but I just love this forum so much, and have gained much more insight into this disease... Thanks to all.....Judbow xxxxooo
