I'm going home (fla) spend Xmas with my family who I haven't seen since the summer, I should be happy but I'm depressed ..I've gained some weight since I've seen them, nothing fits me. I hate buying larger size clothes. I'm currently only on 5mg of prednisone for past few months and been eating way better but the weight is not coming off. Since sept 28 I started taking inmuran, currently on 200mgs still on mestinon and I also take thyroid medication due to a under active thyroid which can be another reason why my weight isn't coming off??? It's been 2yrs since my thymectomy can't tell u if it has helped as my symptoms have remained mostly ocular , sometimes i get mild weakness in other areas but my complaints are double vision and droopy eyelid which was pretty much under control lately up until November and now I'm dealing with the symptoms , we'll not all day, it comes and goes. But I refuse to go higher on my steriods ... I made 2 appointments for January for 2 diff neurologist that I've see to help me get some ivig and taper off the steriods...I'm determined get off the steriods and stay healthy as possible. I'm also planning on weight loss surgery some time next year. I'm ready for some changes I'm too young to be unhappy. Happy holidays to all. Thanks for hearing me out
