Yes, that's right, I'm now COMPLETELY OFF the prednisone. I took my last steroid pill on Tuesday, and have been suffering from withdrawal symptoms since Wednesday evening. It started with a pretty bad headache on Wednesday night which led to me not being able to sleep due to the severity of the headache. On Thursday morning my headache was accompanied by nausea and fatigue. Today I have a faint headache, but the nausea and fatigue are gone. I rode easy today, only for about 25 minutes, which isn't very much, but enough to keep me somewhat sane. I have to keep riding to stay mentally, spiritually, and physically strong. If, for some reason, I get sick again I'm going to keep riding, even if it's on the damn trainer.
It's going to be an interesting next couple of weeks as in the past I have always relapsed 3-6 weeks after coming off the 'roids. Not this time though. I'm stress free, my hubby will be home soon, I'm the strongest I've been since being diagnosed, I'm eating very well, I'm with my fam, and drinking at least 2 ounces of wheatgrass daily. Oh, and I'm starting my Xango drink on Sunday too! I feel confident that I won't relapse, but only time will tell.
I'll keep y'all updated, but until then, enjoy this ridiculous commercial!
