\Hi all seen dr yesterday wow what a long appointment but she's very through which im grateful for. She is keeping me on prednisone for now as well as the plaquinell . So now im on insulin as the pred is playing hovic with blood suger but it can be managed better with insulin rather then the metformin pill so im good with that. Lots of tests to do not just lab work but x rays of hands feet etc and body nuc scan, and another kind of body scan so am kinda nervous but im sure its all good. Keep plugging along day to day , I truly love my life despite this . she has to see what she can put me on for long term after tests as I also have hep c from a blood trans in the 80's so any meds must be liver friendly . Well take care all have a great weekend.

I no the test can be tiring but at least she seems to be doing her best to help you.

I know that the thought of all of these tests can be a bit overwhelming. But, the good news is that you have a doctor who is thorough, who is interested in getting you to a point where you are as symptom-free as possible, and who wants to help you manage your disease and your life! In that respect, you are very lucky. Keep us posted about your future tests! Stay positive!

Peace and Blessings
