Prednisone - Good & Evil

OK, well let's take the plus side first, as I am an optimist at heart, mostly. LOL The Prednisone has lowered the FM flare so pain is down but it has set off the Dystonia and I am jerking more.  SO had to find a replacement to teach the 4-5 yr olds Sunday School class as I didn't want to scare them and wasn't sure I could get there anyway.    Mom is suggesting I quit driving and I told her no, not happening.  I can tell when the meds aren't going to hold off the jerks so I always try to get to a safe place and wait for the lovely jerkies to leave and then press onward.   I keep having this vision of a cop pulling me over and asking me to walk the straight line.  ROFLOL  I can't do that without the jerking and can't move at all with the jerking.  Well, the jerking is technically moving but not in the correct direction. ROFLOL  I shimmy like a hula doll on a dash board driving down a gravel road!  WEEEEE! Anyway, Prednisone also causes you just to tell everyone what you think as it causes you to have a short fuse.  Have warned family to watch out as bombs may go off any time.  God have mercy on them.  Really.  Poor souls.  I hate not being in control of my emotions. Ah, well. Se la vie!  I think that may be close to how it is in French. ROFLOL Hugs my peeps

Ha! I\'ve got two prescriptions of prednisone which I never took. Glad I didnt. Frustrating isnt it. One medication may hold off the movements but aggravate the fibro and vice versa. Nicht so gut. Thats german for \"it stinks\"

C\'est la vie! (can\'t help myself I had 3 yrs of french!) I find the pred takes the inflammation down in the Fibro so muscles are loose not tensed which is probably actually helping to keep you from jerking. With me FIbro holds my loose joints in place, as soon as I take pred it relaxes my stiff muscles and I dislocate...but the pain is definately better. I\'m pretty perky with pred unless it is over 20mgs, then I\'m an emothional roller coaster. Hang on and enjoy the ride!

Dear And - Yep, the Prednisone makes the Fibro feel sooooo good I could dance and jiggle. But then the jerkies start and boy do I jiggle. LOL

Then I think the effects just take a toll on the ole emotions and I want to cry & sleep. Can I have a bottle & fresh diaper? ROFLOL That\'s what I feel like....a really large baby. Just rock me gently, give me a nice warm bottle, & tuck me in to sleep. ZZZZZZZ Love & hugs, sweetie.

Dearest NAN - Well, ain\'t you smart! Good for you! I think if you\'d like to learn a real foreign language, come to my part of the country and you would have no clue as to what is being spoken about. ROFLOL How\'s about RED THE TABLE, HOLLER EYED, PEEK ED, LIVER GROWED, RAMPS, BANK CLOTHES, and I could continue on. Love to you so much, my dear. Your a gem. Prednisone does help the FM pain but I am ready to cry as I know I shall have to give it up. Darn it......Enjoy it while I got it I suppose.

That\'s right, enjoy it while it lasts. Being out of pain can be a real vacation. I need to be on pred to take a vacation! Anyhooo....I am reading Patrick Taylor who write about Ulster Ireland during the 1960\'s (not the real turmoil) but a kind of happy Irish village life. Well, he put\'s a glossary in the back to interpret how the locals talk. They are a great read, since you are an Irish Terror I thought you might like to check them out!

Hmmm, maybe so. Between my Discipleship classes and my Ministerial Counseling Accreditation classes and my general Bible study, it may be a bit to get to, but who knows when, right? Sounds good & would love to get to it.
