    Why, with all the meds, do I still hurt?
    I have been reading some blogs here and see alot of different things going on. Some people are, like me, have joint pain and fatigue everyday all day. Some people are running marathons. Some people have good days.
    Are we all on the same kind of meds? Why is it that I have been taking all these meds (and changing meds) and I find no relief at all. Would I be worst off if I weren't taking any? Do people in remission still take all the meds? And ...

  2. Just when you think you know the rules the game changes

    As much as I adore this site I haven't been on it in awhile. There are several reasons for that, the holiday season being a big one. My daughter was chosen as a student ambassador to Australia/New Zealand and we have of course been working on a lot of fund raising ideas for that.

  5. Finally feel alive again

    I've certainly read all the horrors that go with Prednisone but after trying to reduce it down to 10mg and forcing myself away from the feelings of suicide 90% of the time, the ever-increasing pain and a fatigue that's one step from death, I realized that my quality of life is far too important to dial down the prednisone because it has side effects. As far as I'm concerned, the side effects of not using it are far more intense. Today is the first day in over a week that I felt like I could get ...
