Round 3 and the Dreaded Steroid Taper

I had my appointment with the new Dr earlier this week, and it went really well I think.

He asked how Ive been, how symptoms and attacks have been, if they were different on steroids, how is the steroids going.. And the tapering.
Oh dear god the steroid tapering. It’s evil.

But I’m down to 10mg a day from 40 a few weeks ago so it’s no wonder I’m an emotional, ice cream maniac.

As the appointment wound down he casually said it was time to go back for more chemo/cladribine. I knew it was coming, but it doesn’t make it any easier.

So I have another week to let my body adjust to lowering prednisone and get ready for a week of treatment. I also need to get my hormone shot when I go on my first day. This might be a yucky round because so many things are going on at once. But I have to think that it won’t be too bad.

Until then… More ice cream and pointless crying.
