View Full Version : 3 Days in and can tell the difference :)

August 10th, 2012, 11:25 PM
After being on the steroids for the past 3 days I can already feel the improvement. Body and hands are feeling much better. Now if they would just let me sleep, and making my hot flashes worse. Did not sleep much at all last night. But even at that I am still feeling much better. Thank you one and all for the prayers and well wishes. They certainly helped, probably as much as the meds.

Glad to hear you are doing better. Sure hope you can sleep soon. Wish I knew how to get rid of those hot flashes for you though (I could sure use the suggestions myself).

Yay! I'm glad you're feeling better, even if it does come with crappy sleep and more hot flashes :( But hopefully they'll settle down once the treatment is done and you'll be able to get back to doing what you do best :)

Still sending prayers and best wishes,when I can't sleep (also through hot flushes on hormone treatment) I use the time to quietly search the net for inspiration wishing you all the best

Marilyn, how are you holding up? Good as new yet?? I've been thinking and praying for you.

I am actually doing very well. Had some inflammation today after quilting yesterday, but I can deal with that. If not, I would never get anything done. Thinking about getting some kind of elastic glove or something to help with that. The lupus seems to be getting under control though. Thank you one and all for the prayers and well wishes.

Hi Marilyn, Glad you're feeling better!

August 13th, 2012, 08:25 AM
So glad to hear you're getting some relief, Marilyn! Hopefully, you'll be able to get some sleep now that things are better. Good luck!

Happy to hear you are feeling better. I'm on pred right now also for my flare and am beginning to feel like I can move. Huggers, Barb

Glad to hear you are feeling better. I've seen elastic gloves on the quilting websites that look like they might be comforting, but I'll bet Walgreens would have them also.
