Steroids done.....

The steroid run is complete. Thank God. I once again experienced the usual heartburn from hell. Although with the Prilosec I only suffered through it for about 36 hours this time. No less painful, but a much shorter duration. My vision is a bit better. I think. Although it's going to be a bit of time before I really notice an improvement. I still can't read on my kindle or the newspaper. Thank goodness the keyboard letters on the laptop are big enough to see clearly! I refused to allow myself to be pulled into a "funk" over this exacerbation. It's been 6 months since the last one, so I'm hoping I won't have another for awhile. I have no control over when the exacerbations happen and my job is to keep my stress level down in order not to make it worse. I think I managed the stress pretty well this time around. Perhaps MS has somewhat beat the spirit out of me, or perhaps I've finally accepted I have absolutely no control over if or when an exacerbation will occur, so why even try to fight it. Perhaps it's easier simply to embrace the disease. Stop fighting so hard and simply accept. Do what I need to do as far as taking care of myself, take my medications, run my protocols and simply leave the rest to God.

Hope the run of 'roids does the trick with your ON. Time will tell. Be well.
