Feeling better...now to attack the gym!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

It is absolutely amazing what a trip to the health center can do for someone when they're feeling crummy. I started on the Prednisone today and by this evening I feel so much better! Another helpful little tidbit she gave me a saline rinse and that is like a blessing from above. After that and a warm(ish the water heaters here suck big time) shower I feel so much better. I can actually breathe comfortably for the first time since Friday evening. So I am going to go back to the gym tomorrow after class and language lab time(going to do that in 30 min increments so I don't feel overwhelmed) I'm going to go workout albeit not as hard as I normally would just to avoid overdoing it and relapsing with this crud. Well, gotta run Moliere is calling and I must finish Act 5 before tomorrow. Good night Sparkworld I will see you tomorrow.

    Good thing you're taking care of yourself! One word of warning, though: prednisone can increase blood sugars. If used over long periods of time, it can kick off diabetes in some cases. This is not to scare you; most likely, you'll be fine. But it happened to me, and I wish someone had warned me so I could have gotten regular sugar tests while being treated. (Prednisone probably was not the only factor, but it certainly made things worse.)
    If this is a one-time, short term regimen, don't worry, but if you're on prednisone for months or longer, or over and over again, you might want to ask your doctor about checking your blood sugar, just to make sure.
    Take care of yourself, and good luck!
