I've been eating pretty much nonstop for over 2 weeks...having just had a round of 3 IV Solu's and a Prednisone taper now followed by an ongoing 5 IV Solumedrol trip, I've got more ROIDS floating around in my system than Barry Bonds ever dreamed of having! (Yes, different KIND of steroids, peeps.)
Besides the ravenous appetite, the roids are really hitting my sleep hard...or lack there of. My usual medication cocktails, AKA, elephant tranquilizers, seem to only be blowing dust around my brain versus fairy sparkles of sleep...and leaving this dust caking in my eyes. I look to have either been on one hella bender of drugs or alcohol or having just walked out of a severe sand storm! LOL
The "good" news (if one can optimistically see the silver cloud lining through the storm) is, I AM having less agitation in my leg...which has shifted to a worsening weakness and some gait difficulties. Weakness I can deal with, but that pain and agitation HAD to go...I was beginning to sway, bounce, and pace in public in the most alarming of parkinsonian ways...just not pretty. And the vibrating sensation in my left shoulder DOES also seem a bit better as does the pain down my arm. Not sure if this is a direct result of the Soly IV's or the addition of the Mirapex Dr. SWWNBN prescribed in my monumental office visit this week. My left-sided facial numbness is now just a slight occurence, leaving me once again with my signature smirk, also possibly a direct result of the Soly. I don't think it really MATTERS which cause is the culprit...I just want it ALL GONE. LOL
I have been staying off work AGAIN and home bored out of my mind...mainly, because my concentration level is that of a severely ADHD chicken! I just KNOW I've been doing "something" to pass my time at home, but really have nothing to show for it nor can I recall what "it" is! I have made a promise to do a bit of Numerology dabbling for BUBBIE in honor of her upcoming birthday this week (YES!!!! You've been outted, my friend!!!! Moohahaha)...that will require a bit of focus AND math...neither, of which, I seem to have any control over. LOL So, her "reading" could be verrrrrry interesting. I've got cobwebs hanging from my ceilings the size of large fishing nets, which need to be swept down and another accumulated pile of laundry to beat on the rocks in the river. There are certainly things I CAN do...if I can focus and remember to start them AND finish the tasks.
I am hoping the rest of you MS bloggers will post prolifically and profoundly (really doesn't even have to be profound, just entertaining will suffice!) to keep me occupied for the next 3 days...I NEED something to read and to do besides eating! How's that for a guilt trip on ya? LOL...
