    It’s the best/worst. Don’t push yourself when you get the first rush of “wellness” from it because it’s like how tequila makes you think you should dance on a table.

    On the upside, my house is never as clean as when I am on prednisone.

    Good to know about the cough! Mine randomly cleared up after 2 nights of waking up to hack to death. But I'm still mucousy (more so than when I was coughing). I've had a sore throat since at least Saturday and it's not budging. Its not super intense, and no fever, but I'm really hoping it's not strep again. I had it before, but I figured it was due to coughing a lot and irritation from that. Could still be irritation from the mucous, I guess? Dont really have any other cold symptoms atm though. These virus bugs have been really strange these past few weeks, ugh.

    Hope you're back up to speed soon @Afishwish. Being sick for so long is just brutal, even when it's "not a big deal."

    I can finally sleep again, thank god. I'm still all stuffy and snotty in the mornings, but I know I'll have to deal with that until this baby arrives. I'm due for Botox tomorrow, but my appointment isn't until the 31st, so I'm dreading what happens until then. I just this morning thought to look up when my last appointment was, since they usually say 12 weeks but schedule 13. Yeah, it'll be way overdue and I had a bad migraine last week. OB was less than helpful with "well if it's really bad you can come in here for an IV (with Benadryl and Reglan, that's it)." I know I've been lucky so far this pregnancy, but since I haven't been suffering they are really hesitant to ok anything else (like my friend who got the ok for Imitrex). I just, ugh, Tylenol is so worthless.

    I tried to call to see if they had any cancellations in the next couple weeks or could at least schedule my next one so it wasn't so long again and the system hung up on me. :no:

    Excellent description. I’ve had trouble sleeping from the buzz, but lost 4 pounds overnight and wake up horny. Despite that, I’m definitely not in a “can operate heavy machinery” headspace.

    Today’s my last day of prednisone and the first day of NO cough and only very mild congestion. I feel like a new human again.

    So how concerned should I be that 8 hours later, I still can’t feel the tips of the fingers on my left hand (ie can’t feel anything above the top knuckle)?

    All of the fingers or just some of them?

    4/5. Middle finger weirdly seems ok now. I can feel it on the surface if I touch the skin, but if I try to do anything with the hand the inside of my upper fingers feels numb if that makes sense?

    C head-butted me in the mouth 2 weeks ago while playing. I bit the shit out of the inside of my lip and instantly got a giant knot. It doesn’t hurt but it hasn’t gone down in size at all and its super annoying. Any ideas when it will shrink (it WILL shrink yes??)

    Ow! I feel like that’s the sort of thing that goes away one day and you don’t know when it did.

    Fuck me. I’m sick AGAIN. New bug, it’s indigestion with slight fever, achey joints, and swollen lymph nodes. I know this is normal when you have a preschooler, but man am I sick of being sick. I feel like such a wimp. The sturdy country stock ancestors are all disappointed by how wimpy their descendant is.

    Can a bronchitis cough cone and go? I got sick like a week before Christmas- some sort of chest thing with fever (no runny nose). The cough and mucus and sore throat lingered awhile. The mucus never fully disappeared, but improved a lot and the cough stopped. But now the chesty cough is back and idk if its a new thing or the old thing? I feel fine otherwise and its just annoying more than anything. Just something I have to ride out, right? Should i take daily mucinex for awhile?

    Eta nvm, pretty sure its something new and just aggravating the old cough. I had congestion in my ears this morning making things sound muffled, and right now the insides feel itchy and i just want to stab them with a q tip.
