Man! Do I feel great!! These steroids are strong stuff for being such little pills, but they do the trick! I can honestly say that I have a new view on life. I am so much happier than before. Although I have always been a happy person, I just feel more thankful everyday that I am alive. I feel happy all the time. I am now weaning down from the steroids (Medrol) and am now on Methotrexate, for who knows how long. I didn’t even have a reaction to the first dose! YAY!! I also have stated to exercise, and boy am I a weakling. I have such poor endurace. I was able to jog for 1/2 a mile on the treadmill……at a 15 minute pace 😦
I am looking to going back to work next month too!!! I love my career so much!! I would do it for free!!!! (Don’t tell the hospitals this!!)
Life is good. God is good.
I acquired AOSD in 2008. I have suffered so terribly and have found ways to help me regain my life. This my personal journal of this mystery illness to diagnosis. I hope that I can help others with my experience and information.
