Will the struggles never end?
I knew it was coming, but I tried desperately to ignore it. I was hoping I was just having a simple flare up that would pass. However, the increased fatigue. bladder problems, increased balance problems and finally, another case of optic neuritis proved this was no flare up. I'm having a full fledged exacerbation. DAMN!! So tomorrow I start the regime. You know the one. A gram of solumedrol IV for 5 days. Mark already piked up the Prilosec. I'll start taking that tonight with the hope that it will help minimize the gastritis I always get. So, first thing in the morning the home health nurse will be here. My vision is so bad this time, I can't read and typing this is a challenge. It's been 6 months since my last round of steroids. I just hope this time one round does it and this is not a repeat of last summer and fall. I'll keep you posted!
