I'm not at the half way point yet. These drugs aren't for sissies. I'm really low and I know this is a side effect of the prednisone. I go through it every time. It's just hard when you already suffer with depression and have to take a medication which the side effect is depression. It's like a depression sundae. More scoops of depression and I don't know what the sprinkles are and when the sprinkles are coming. As I sit here and type my thoughts, now all I can think about are ice cream sundaes.
I'm a lone wolf when it comes to suffering. I'm like a cat in many ways. I just want to go off and be by myself and lick my wounds until I'm healed or go die in peace. I admire the dignity of animals that suffer in silence and always put their tough face on. We humans could learn a lot from them. I just want to stay in my bat cave and sleep until it passes.
Huh, I thought I would have more to say but I guess I really don't. I'm tired of being alone. I do know that much today.
Happy Sunday to all and hope fellow sufferers are feeling relatively well.
