cyclsporine anyone?

Friday, March 15, 2013

This is the drug I'm on now to try to get the psoriasis under control. It seems to be going well so far, except for the weight gain (again) and the excrutiating migraines. Both are some of the side effects one could get from this drug. I've had migraines since my teenage years, but had them pretty much under control and now this. But, I can use a broom to sweep, use a scissors and do all kinds of things I haven't been able to do for about 2.5 years. And I can go for glorious walks again! Feeling so blessed! Some days, even washing my hands was not possible. I'm thinking that for now this is a fair trade off. Has anyone else used cyclosporine and has any experience they can share?

Well, tomorrow I'm off to Europe for a month. Taking my eating plan with me, not sure how that will go, but I'm going to be optimistic about it. They have the most fantastic hiking trails all over the place and that is my passion. Hoping that the feet will hold out. The pustular psoriasis medication (Humira) is not coming with me so will see how that goes. I will be staying in Schopfheim which is 15 minutes from the Swiss and French border. Will be doing bus and train tours. Yes, I am excited. WooHoo!! Bless you all

lady's yearly exam

Friday, August 19, 2011

Lady's yearly exam: I went to the doc for my yearly physical. The nurse started with certain basics. "How much do you weigh?" "135" I said. The nurse put me on the scale. It turns out I weigh 180. The nurse asked "your height"? "5' 8", I said. The nurse checked & saw I measured 5'4". She then took my blood pressure and told me that it is very high. "Of course it's high!" I screamed, "When I came in here I was tall and slender! Now I'm short and fat!" She put me on Prozac. What a bitch. ('unknown)
