Justakid Posted April 3, 2005 Share Posted April 3, 2005 OK, my SOB is getting on my nerves. I have reduced my prednisone to 30mg (working towards 20mg cause of the weight gain that is sufficating me!) I have two inhalers now, any clues on how long it will take to get adjusted to the reduced steriods and inhalers. I cough more now and get stuff up so I know those inhalers are down there stirring stuff up which is good, we wanna get it outta there. I still can't get past the fact that I have stage 4 and everyone keeps telling me how wonderful my color is and great I look (aside from the weight), if it wasn't for the SOB, I would think I would almost feel what could be considered really good! I know that there are lots of Stage 4 who are doing great....but I expected to be deathly ill cause of it. I don't know guess I'm just complaining, waiting and trying to make my miracle happen.... waiting for the 11th for the scan and trying not to get too excited that everything is cool. Tring to remain calm and not get hysterical like I usually do! Think my worst times are 1st thing in the morning and at night (which is pretty normal). Shrink says that there is not much we can do about the epression becauseof the amount of steriods I am on, the amount of antidepressants she would have to give me to get through the steriods is not worth it. I'm starting to see her once a week now until we can get things under control. Guess I've rambled long enough......here's to a GREAT April FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!! Good test results, inprovements and less procedures all around!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
