You Can't Always Get What You Want

If there’s one thing that lupus teaches you, it’s that. It stops you from doing the exercise you want, it keeps you from the Peace Corps, it limits your career choices, your hobby choices, your (usable/enjoyable) free-time, and, sometimes, your friend choices. Lately, I’ve come to consider these limitations just more symptoms of the disease.

I went back to the doctor yesterday. He raised the methotrexate dose AND reset the prednisone taper back to 30mg. I had worked my way all the way back down to 9mg, so that was quite a blow. I get so jittery at 30mg! Sigh. On the plus side, at least he doesn’t think I need to take a break from school…


  1. Keep your spirits up, I know the Prednisone sucks :(

  2. thanks for the supportive thoughts, dear!

  3. I should also start thinking of all the things I've lost as symptoms of the disease. Good idea for sure. I also feel your pain on the prednisone.

    Thanks for visiting my blog - your comment was awesome :)

  4. thanks, Annie! I'm so glad I found your blog too - thanks for the sharing. I can't believe how helpful hearing from people in similar situations truly is. :) xoxo


I love to hear from my readers! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Please be polite and respectful, I've had some trouble with that already. Thanks!! :)
