I took my last prednisolone tablet todayyyyy!!!!
Im really happy about this!! I have been on them for just over 3 months and i hate hate hate it!!
I have to go and have a blood test in 2 weeks time, and if my platelet count is above 50,000 then i can say goodbye to the prednisolone for now!!
Finally i can try to get back to loosing weight and 'moving on'. I dont know why, but it just feels like a huge weight has been lifted off me...Plus my stomach is starting to settle down from the plaquenil, so im feeling good.
I have had a few pains in my hands the last few days, but i dont really care at the moment...now i just need the extreme tiredness to vanish and i will be feeling great. I think i may even go back to the gym tomorrow for the first time since i was diagnosed...

Thanks guys,
I walk my dogs everyday anyway, but i will go back to the gym and just go easy to start with :) Going back will just be another 'normal' thing i can do. Also, they charge me $57 a month even if i dont go LOL

Congrats! I hope everything stays stable enough that you can stay off the pred. I had blood problems with my Lupus too. Good luck with the gym!
