Guess it is my day to let things out. I was dx with bipolar disorder in early 2000. I learned sometime later after hearing Jane Pauly's story that steroids are contraindicated for people with bipolar. Well, now they are the only thing that even come close to helping with this current FM flare. Unfortunately, even a small dose makes me crazy. I was already hurting bad today when the cat brought a live bird in the house and I had to rescue it (a whole other story if anyone cares to hear it). I had a meltdown after it was all over, and now I hurt even worse. I know that taking a higher dose will help so much, but I can't stand what it does to me. It is so distressing that I have to choose between my mental and physical well-being. I suppose I could call the rheumatologist and talk to whoever is on call, but I dont feel hopeful about that. I am concerned that I am going to be wiped out tomorrow and fall further behind in some important financial affairs that have to be completed. Sorry to run on so, but I dont know who else to tell.
