Well, I'm having a 'flare'...I'm so depressed...I called my Dr and he wanted to see me. (This is my internist not my rheumy) I was in so much pain that I barely made it to the office. He put me on prednisone for 7 days (I think) and since I started it, I haven't slept but a few hours (broken) I'm also taking plaquenil twice daily as part of my daily regimine but I guess during this flare, he had me take this. I'm not as bad as I was that day of course, but I feel really really really sad. mctd isn't the only thing I have, I also have Diabetes and Epilepsy. My blood sugars have been running super low, for no aparent reason. I'm just really lost today and not even sure what I'm saying. Thanks for listening everyone, thanks for just being there.
