My health

Posting an update on my health to ask for prayer.

I am miserable! I don't know any other way to put it.....

Prednisone is surely killing me. I'm on Prednisone and Lyrica and they both cause weight gain. I have gained so much weight in the last month it is scarey.

I've tried to taper down the prednisone several times, but my body won't let me. The itching never completely goes away, but on the prednisone it settles it down to a tolerable amount. When I try to tapper off, it flares up and I am itching like crazy.

I can not stay on prednisone. Oh and the lyrica causes my hands, legs and feet to swell up like Popeye.

I just feel like crying. I need to start going in the other direction soon! I feel horrible! Please pray I can get off prednisone.
