I went to the doctors today and I get to start physical therapy as soon as I want. I get to go 3 times a week. They still aren't sure about my diagnosis and don't think I have a lot of hope with getting much stronger but I'll show them!! I hate that I have felt so much better this past month and go to the doctors to tell them that and they completely deflate my good mood by saying that they don't think I'll see much improvement. They are upping my Methotrexate to 20mg and next month I get to start tapering the prednisone down to 40mg a day. Which I really happy about because I'm not digging the fat face, the beard and mustache or the neck hump I'm developing!! I know it shouldn't bother me about them saying that I might not get better, they have to tell me that stuff just incase, but I'm bound and determined that the next time I see them 2 months from now that they will look at me and stratch they're heads saying "How did you get this much better in just 2 months?" Its going to happen whether I kill myself in the process or not lol!!!

I was concerned about having a hysterectomy. However, everything turned out great! I kept my ovaries. I don't have any side effects, except no periods, which is totally fine by me. My sex drive is fine, even higher since I don't have to deal with period stuff.
