  1. Happiness and Frustrations

    My trip to Yosemite was boat loads of fun!! I got over my sickness just in time for it, and though I still had a minor cough, it didn't effect me too much while on the trip. And Lupus didn't really effect me too much either which I am very grateful for! I was able to do all the hiking. We even went on a 7 mile round trip hike which was strenuous uphill the entire way for 3.5 miles until we reached the top of Nevada Falls and then turned around to come back down. We saw 2 waterfalls on that ...

  2. More Prednisone Tapering

    As of yesterday I am now down to 17.5mg of prednisone. The last 2 times I tapered I ended up catching a pretty bad cold (and I'm still not completely over the most recent one I caught) so I'm hoping I don't get sick again from this.

  4. Prednisone Tapering Update

    Today was my first day on 20mg of prednisone down from 30mg. I'm feeling okay, just a little bit of pain in my toes. I'm hoping that I won't get anymore pain tomorrow because I'm meeting a friend up in Santa Barbara for the weekend!

    I also have a huge 15 page paper to finish writing for my techniques of counseling class. It requires a lot of concentration and commitment that I have difficulty with when Lupus makes me feel like crap. This is my last paper of the semester though ...
