    I am doing better. Had surgery to remove sabaceous cyst on my left armpit. It was huge. It actually got infected and turned into an abcess...OUCH! I went for my follow up on Monday and I had gotten a staph infection called merca that made my doctor up my antibiotics to 800mg Bactrim. All this cause I am LUCKY...LOL! I started playing the lottery cause I know I am not going through all this for nothing. I know I have some luck coming.
    Thanks for checkin on are you? BTW I will add you to face book this weekend!

    Hey Tasha!
    Glad your doing well. Yeah, I have gone from 30mg to 5mg of prednisone and every single time it got lowered I had flare ups. I had to take off work here and there a few days. I have been at 5mg for about 3 months now. I am doing better. I had a flare up last week and i had 2 cyst under my left armpit that have gotten bigger so I have to have surgery this week. Out patient but still surgery. I hope school is going well for are you doing with school?

Just Checkin In...

Went to San Francisco last weekend! Had a blast! No pains either... woohoo!

I've been doing really well. Labs are still normal, and I'm now down to 10mg of prednisone! I couldn't be happier about that. And my rheumatologist said I can lower by 1mg every 2 weeks until I am prednisone-no-more (so long as I don't have any problems, but I am VERY optimistic about this!)

I'm expecting a slight flare in a day or so, as I always get when I lower prednisone, as my

I feel so achey today :(

by tasha on 05-17-2009 at 01:12 PM
A few days ago my rheumatologist said I could lower my prednisone to 12.5mg! Yay! But today, about 3 days later, I feel very achey. My feet, knees, hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, pretty much EVERYWHERE hurts! I went to the gym this morning thinking it might help but it just made me feel worse. This sucks because I have a lot planned for today. I'm going out to lunch with my dad and then we're going shopping for a new BBQ, which I've wanted for a VERY long time. Then I was going

It just keeps getting better!!!

by tasha on 05-13-2009 at 10:38 AM
A lot has happened since I last posted in here... and it's all good! The day after my last appointment with my rheumatologist, I went to see another rheumatologist up at UCLA. He pretty much reassured me that my rheumatologist was doing the right thing in terms of my treatment, and he was extremely impressed with my progress as he was looking at my lab results over the course of the last several months. I was also able to participate in a few studies they were conducting at UCLA. They didn't

Feeling MUCH Better Now!

by tasha on 04-28-2009 at 03:29 PM
I just had an appointment with my rheumatologist and I feel SO much better about everything now. I got some things answered, and I feel pretty good about my condition again.

The reason she increased my CellCept to 2,500 was because the blood levels in my urine have remained unchanged even though my protein levels have gone down drastically. She thinks I need the extra dosage to get the blood levels down. I'm okay with that. I was just afraid it was worse!

I also
