View Full Version : Final weaning days.

Hello all,

So it is now the sixth morning that I have taken my new amount of Prednisolone of 12.5 mg. As usual this is one of my worst days, with exhaustion,swelling, ah well I wont go on you all know the symptoms. As all my mates are at work, girlfriend at work, parents out, I remain at home waiting for that time to feel better. With amounts lowering below 15mg, I will finally start feeling abit more alive, (as i did last time when I went below 15mg) as long as theres no flare up, which Rituximab will hopefully do its job and keep me stable.

Trying to follow in the footsteps of a fellow Aussie lad who was diagnosed exactly with what ive got at a young age just like me. He also went through hell for a couple of years, however he finally got on top of it and remains in remission. Hes a personal trainer and does gym work every day.

I know I can get to that stage, and will.

WOW you have done so well. Well what do you expect, with an Aussie lad to be an inspiration for you. Way to go Australia - what a fantastic country, what fantastic Australian people are

Sorry..... Just had to do some self promotion here.

I really am pleased with your persistance. Keep up with the good work and find yourself busy distracting yourself from the difficulties you are experiencing at the moment.

Keep going, mate!
Attitude means a lot, and it sounds like you have a good example to follow.
Hugs from the US,
