I am not doing well

Sorry I havent been around in the last couple of days. As most of you know I am taking prednisone for UC. I have come down with oral thrush and the stomach pains are back worst than ever. If it werent for my family I would pray for god to end this misery I am in at this point. It is very tough on me the mood swings and all the sh!t that has come along with this medicine.
I just wanted you all to know I am trying to hang in there but d@m I never thought it would be this baddddd I also thought that the prednisone would help me as the dose has tampered down the problems have gotten worst especially the stomach issues I have.
Anyway not trying to ramble on and on take care

Can you get the doctor to extend the prednisone treatment ?   Or is it the prednisone making it worse ?  Hope you feel better soon.

Sorry your feeling so bad.  Whats UC? Your a guy, so it can't be uterine cancer, right?
Uterine Cancer?
Upper Cavity?
Utility Cable?
Ugly Crotch?
Used Crotch?
Used Condom?
Upset Croch?
Unlikely Candidate?
Undone Canundrom?
Ultra Contagious?

Sorry...just a little humor..very little.
Hope you feel better.

Anyone else want to guess what UC  is?

Hey, you forgot;

Uncontrollably Cuddly. He's getting worn down by all the girls grabbing him every where he goes.:)

Sorry you're under the weather mate, I hope it gets better. My recent bout taught me that there's nothing like the hope of sweet relief in the future to keep you going.

prednisone is used to treat numerous things...when my husband is on it (which is very on a regular basis) it makes him very moody, eats alot, has a very short temper...but sometimes it's the old med that will keep him on his feet so we just deal with it...it should make you very hungry as well....I don't care for it but if it helps just keep on keeing on, isn't if like a week drug 6 one day 5 than down to 1?  Some people swear by it...you will be in my prayers :)

I do feel for you I have a horrible time taking prednisone as well I cant sleep AT ALL and I itch very badly lucky I have not been prescribed it to many times
Blank
495284_tn?1333897642
Interesting!!!!!  I thought Bose was supposed to be NO.1??
Blank
277836_tn?1359669774
You would be wrong
Its like the adds you see here at med help the more you see it the more you think about it right?
Bose is way over rated and to much money for the true product that is given to the consumer

try taking the prednisone with lots of bread and milk eat the bread 10 min. before you take the med.and milk this helps me good luck
Blank
277836_tn?1359669774
That wont work for me due to the fiber intake and the milk will make it worst thanks for the advice.
I am coming off the prednisone one way or the other if its not helping whats the point?

I agree with you..if it's not helping then stop taking it for sure..the least amount of time you need to take a steroid the better...I hate when I have to give my kids that stuff..it makes them bounce off the walls...I hope your feeling better...take care
Blank
