    Rob, thanks, it's definitely gotta be a violation of the hippocratic oath...DO NO HARM and all Oh well, I talked to my pharmacist and ended up getting 5 days worth of medicines to last me til Monday so I can go see my GP. Hopefully I can get in there and he'll help me. He's always been great. He just really wanted me to see a rheum and I am now deciding that until I can get health insurance I am gonna stick with my GP. Oh well, you live and learn right. Always gotta look on the bright side, or at least try to. I'm so thankful to all of you guys for being here to hear me gripe today. It's so nice to have people to listen. My family was so lost, they had no idea what I should do. They try to help, but they just don't know anything about lupus or any of my other illnesses. It's the thought that counts, so I try not to gripe to them too much. Thanks again guys, and I'll update on Monday after the dr. appt. Good night guys, I hope all is well with everyone!

    way to go Adl011,

    so glad your pharmacist was able to work with you. Hope you got some restful sleep last night, and that your weekend will be stress free. You have had to deal with so much lately.

    Hey there ADL,

    Glad to hear you got enough meds to tide you over. I meant to tell you that my G.P. is really good, and he will always go around any un-cooperative specialists-for meds, or whatever. I was going to suggest you try the same thing-that is if you have a G.P. with some mutual trust. Sounds like you are already ahead of me on that idea. It's a good safety plan to have in place if you can indeed find a good G.P. who will work with you, and for you.

    Rob

    Okay, update time...

    I went to the dr this morning, and it was GREAT! I love my GP. He gave me a new medicine that was a lot cheaper and said that it will also help with the anxiety from the steroids and help me sleep! I may actually get more than 4 hours of sleep a night now. That is so exciting. It's been months since I've been able to sleep a full night through! Today is a fresh start and adjusting to the new medicine may still take some time, but I'm so happy. Thanks for all of your support

    ~Amanda
