Today was supposed to be my last day on steroids. I've been counting down the days for quite a while.
But the last few days, I've been shaky and tired. We all know how poorly my body handles even a slow steroid taper. So, based on how I've been feeling, I think going from 5 mg (although that's a super low dosage) to nothing might put me back in adrenal crisis mode. I'd prefer to avoid that.
So... I refilled my little weekly pill container with 'roids, and will continue 'roiding it up for the next four weeks, at least. Guess I should make a new little countdown calendar. In the meantime, I'm enjoying my little dimpled chipmunk cheeks! They are kinda cute.
