Even though I've been "here" for several months, I never saw this before. I am going to try to keep up. I know I won't be able to manage daily entries though.
I've had a number of relapses over the past couple of years. I have to say, I'm pretty tired of it. This one was kind of a surprise. It didn't start off as dramatically as the others did. It just sort of crept up on me. I think it's minor. I'm taking an oral prednisone "pulse" to help. I really didn't want to take it, but my doctor was pretty insistent that it would help.
He also wants me to get a power chair. He told me that last year too. I've been pretty resistant up to now. I give up, I really need something to either help me walk better- or maybe I'll have to go the route of the motorized wheelchair. Medicare and my private insurance will cover a chair, but not the lift that has to be attached to our car. Not sure where the money will come from. Oh well...
It's pretty late, and I have over two hours of MRI's tomorrow. It's going to be a long day.
