Feed Me Seymour!

singing camelsAs anyone who has ever been on Prednisone will tell you steroids make you want to eat your way through everything that even resembles food while simultaneously running around in circles [okay that last bit may be just me]. I typically do my best not to take it as it really upsets my stomach and tends to make me a little crazy. Well once again in the wake of a massive flare, I have found myself riding the Prednisone train. My rheumatologist is worried that it may be more than me just reacting to storm season and is concerned that this is a sign that I’ve built up a tolerence to Orencia like I did with Remicade, this is worrisome as there are only a handful of RA medications that I haven’t been on yet. I’m not even sure what to do if I run out of potential RA medications, clinical trials won’t take me due to my high white cell count, my low red cell count, and my latent TB. I’m doing my best not to focus on the bad and continue to eat my way through this very large container of tofu pad thai. T-minus 13 days until the Mayo, fingers crossed ya’ll.

  1. Hang in there. Been on the prednisone train myself once or twice and BlueBell Ice Cream always seemed to be the antidote for me.

  2. Doggone it — massive flare! I’m counting downtoo — I’ll be so glad when you get to Mayos’. Why couldn’t the flare wait until then, while you’re there. Might be helpful for diagnosis. Not that I’m hoping you’ll get another flare-up then!! Who’s Seymour? Loving you and thinking of you lots, Mimi

    • Hopefully they will have a chance to see the flare up. And it’s okay to hope for a flare-up 😉 “feed me seymour” is a line from the musical “little shop of horrors”
