one day it'll all make sense.

a better tomorrow

So that’s what keeps me smiling… I will feel better tomorrow. While the progress has been slow or seemingly non-existent, I will keep smiling. It’s been 9 days now since I noticed the numbness inside my mouth and lack of sense of taste. While I will say, things don’t taste quite as AWFUL, they still certainly don’t taste great. Don’t know if I’m just adapting, or actually getting better though. Today is also day 5 since I started the prescribed regiment of Prednisone to combat my symptoms. The stuff is wicked. Turns me into such a bitch. Also causes water/sodium retention, so I’m feeling a bit like the Pilsbury dough boy and thirsty all the time. After two days on the Prednisone, this fitness nut was ready to toss the scale off my 5th floor balcony. I don’t deal well with seeing the pounds adding on! I decided the best solution was to not step on until this is all over. đŸ™‚
Another challenge with the meds is I went from sleeping 9-11 hours a night, to barely able to sleep at all. I’m exhausted, but wired. It’s frustrating…
BUT…. I WILL FEEL BETTER TOMORROW

  1. Great philosophy -one I try to live by too, but sometimes forget.

    They gave you prednisone for sensory symptoms? My MS neuro refuses to ever give prednisone so far – through blindness in one eye, facial paralysis, numbness, l’hermitte’s and the whole taste thing (I get metallic taste in my mouth).
