Yesterday was my first drug-free day since May 19 2008! Wow!! Truthfully it was pretty much like every other interferon induced Saturday for the past 11 months, slight fever, nausea, breathlessness, headache etc but it really felt like a great burden was lifted not having to take the drugs.
I struggled making it to those last 2 Riba but I got there. I was beset by all manner of aches and pains over the last week and I am having a great deal of pain in my left wrist which I have never experienced before. Admittedly I have been using the keyboard a great deal in the last month so that may have something to do with it. I sure do hope this will ease as the drugs leave my system....
Have cut back to one Temazepam nightly, and want to cut back the Prozac from 40mgs daily to 20mgs daily as soon as poss. Need to have some massage done as I feel like my body has seized up and I also need to get on a supplements regime. Dragging the chain a bit on that one as I can't bear the thought of more tablets...
I am also having glimpses of my old bubbly personality, albeit for about 30 seconds at a time but it gives me hope! Small improvements everyday is my goal, doesn't matter how small.
