So the steroids seem to be working but the best part is that I haven’t had to take any of the antacid meds that my doctor gave me as well. So far my daily routine is to drink a glass of cranberry/pomegranate juice mixed with some RepairVite and a tbsp of apple cider vinegar. I drink that along with my bone broth and eat some sort of protein. Be it left over hamburgers or chicken. Then I take my 6 Prednisone and wash it down with a banana. That all seems to be doing the trick!
Last night I felt great! For the first time in like 3 weeks. I was actually able to get a bunch of work down around the house after I came home from a meeting. In fact I wasn’t even sure if I was even going to make it to the meeting! I didn’t think I would be able to stay sitting for the couple of hours I needed to. But in the end I felt pretty ok, and even was up for going to the grocery store. Which was great because I was so behind on it. It just isn’t the same having to send your husband out to get the things you know you need but he doesn’t know what brands and stuff, you know?
Maybe it was some of that euphoria that is a side effect of the steroids, who knows but I was able to do a load of laundry, clean the kitchen load the dishwasher and mop up parts of the kitchen floor (well just with a rag and my foot) and then I still did my stretches and exercises for the day. I may not have gone to bed until 1am, but it just felt so good to DO something for a change.
This afternoon I have a friend of mine coming over to help watch my daughter. I think I’m going to take the time to head out to the gym where they have a hot tub and heated pool. I would just do it here, but I’m locked out the pool area for the next couple of days. Long story. And I really felt like the water was helping.
