You Can’t Always Get What You Want
If there’s one thing that lupus teaches you, it’s that. It stops you from doing the exercise you want, it keeps you from the Peace Corps, it limits your career choices, your hobby choices, your (usable/enjoyable) free-time, and, sometimes, your friend choices. Lately, I’ve come to consider these limitations just more symptoms of the disease.
I went back to the doctor yesterday. He raised the methotrexate dose AND reset the prednisone taper back to 30mg. I had worked my way all the way back down to 9mg, so that was quite a blow. I get so jittery at 30mg! Sigh. On the plus side, at least he doesn’t think I need to take a break from school…
