Hello... I am so thankful to have this site to go to when i am feeling over the top with everything. I have been on prednisone for 1 mth and plaquenil for 3 wks. I have joint pain 2/10 and i have lower back muscle spasms when i work, lifting patients. i have major fatigue as well. i have applied for an intermittant LOA and i have gone part time. My boss is upset because she instituted mandatory ON CALL and i explained i wouldnt be able to do on call nights. because of my health. I have been having some depression and i am not sure what to do. I want to get off the prednisone because of gaining wgt and other issues assoc. with prednisone. but not sure if he will recommend it just yet. i have my 3rd Rheumy appt tuesday. He is a man of few words, so i dont ask questions. i like him but i need to start asking him questions. i do not know why i am rambling on to you all. i just feel so frustrated, with feeling like crap and getting pressure from work to work more... anyway...i am thankful that it was caught early and i dont already have joint damage. thanks for listening. M

I worry about what if bad things happen. What if I need someone yet have no one to personally call in emergency situations. It's hard not to be fearful at times wondering about the "what ifs" in life when I'm so alone. I hate this.
I like doing laundry, floors, but I hate to dust.
