Additional Charming Updates
Well. I started prednisone last night. My fourth round in a year. FOURTH. Good god. I was feeling generally miserable and consistenly short of breath. I'm hoping this works. Wonder Allergist has done a wonderful disappearing act lately (didn't answer three emails over the past week -- he always emails me right back), so I called to find out WTF and am hopeful I'll get squared away with a new asthma management plan. Until then, I'm hanging with the 'roids. This stuff is NOT GOOD, although it does wonderful things, I worry about the long term effects on my endocrine system. Yes, I realize the long term effects of not breathing are well, more important. Having trouble breathing, aside from being well, generally alarming, is always terrifying for me given the family history. So it's exhausting and upsetting on several levels. Add that to general moving stress and I basically want to stay in bed all day.
My boots arrived. We love, however they are a teensy tight in the calves. Since there's no tabs or loops, this creates a bit of challenge in you know, getting them up my calves. I'm still in love with them though and am wearing them today. I figure they'll stretch. Yay boots!
