I just need to say I feel bad today. Not just because I am not feeling so hot physically, but because some old symptoms I managed to shake for a while are back. They came back as soon as I started cutting back on prednisone. Among other things, I am running a low-grade temp, am terribly tender in the neck by my lower jaw, am tired, and my shoulders won't stop hurting. I wanted to go to the opera this morning, but was too tired and knew I couldnt handle a 3 1/2 hours in a theatre seat. Prednisone was like a miracle to me, but it is something that cant be taken long term without damage and bad side effects, some of which I experienced. I know from experience my docs will know how to help me, but for today I am sad and discouraged these symtoms have returned and are disrupting my life. Thanks for letting me get this out and not feel so alone.

I'm just so sick and tired of living like this and I have done SO much to try to feel better, I've tried everything I can think of...
