There's nothing wrong with gloating. You should take a good day and run with every minute of it. One of the ways I cope is to dive headfirst into my good days, and use the the memory of that day to help through the bad ones. One thing is for certain, we learn to never waste a single minute of a good day. Some of us have them more often than others, but it never changes. To get up in the morning, and feel good, is like winning the lottery every few days. Of course, you may bounce a few checks and have to give the money back on the bad days, but there's always the hope that there are plenty of good days still ahead.

I also send congrats.

Celebrate and enjoy the good days. Make lots of memories.

I was given a Medrol injection two days ago, and feel great. My grandchildren came over and we decorated my christmas tree. I will post this in my "grateul Journal". Each day I try to find 5 things to be grateful for....sometimes it is the tv that I have in my bedroom, but I write it down...no matter how small.

Have fun, be careful....smile.

Bonjourno again!

right im still on a high and full of life from all what happened on friday, just one thing i wanna ask? so how long does the medrol take to kick in? im in soo much flipping pain with my back, i thought it was getting better lol its not, some one help me please, hmm im wondering if i left it too long beofre i went and got it now :(

12-10-2008, 07:21 PM
I got a Medrol shot last Wednesday. Got immediate relief in most areas. Had a couple of places that still ached for a couple of days. Then I had a couple of great days, and by 6 days later, I began to start to feel bad again. Today I feel ok, but I sure enjoyed the few days of less pain. Don't know if this will be the same for you, but this is how my injection went.

I wish you the best,

12-10-2008, 07:43 PM
Keep taking that positive atitude with you every where you go......even through the rough days!!!!! I am so happy for you and please, always tell us about the good days! :smilecolros:

12-11-2008, 03:15 PM

Hang in there and I am thinking of you. I know it can be very frustrating when you see a ray of hope and it ends up being so short lived. Hold on to the fact that there was a ray of hope and maybe there can be an adjustment somewhere that will help the next time. I have never had one of those injections so I do not know anything about it. I am sending you gentle hugs and lots of well wishes.

I just did a little research and found this:


Check out the area that talks about the side effects. It says you may experience a few days of pain even worse than before.......could this be something like that :?:

I am happy that you are feeling a bit better and I am soooo glad that you were able to find a little helpful information in the article :D I will be 30 in June and I can not believe it is only 6 months away :!: I too hope to be in good spirits and health when that comes along.
