Yesterday I took a short drive with Chris to get my car washed because, with it sitting around, it accumulated a lot of dirt. That and I figured I'd top off the gas since I had a coupon for 5 cents off a gallon. (If you have a Delta Sonic near you USE THAT! Today is the last day though.) With the wash ended up being, I think, 10 cents off a gallon. My eye kept watering & I kept blinking it like crazy. With the blurring going in & out, I got really uncomfortable so I had Chris drive home. Never heard back from my eye specialist that I e-mailed 2 weeks ago & called on Monday & Friday last week. Even if he is on vacation, someone still should have called me back to at least give me a time frame of when I would be able to get some answers to my questions. Not sure if I want to try calling again today or wait until tomorrow. I think the next best specialist is around 100 miles away. This is frustrating & upsetting me.

I actually thought going down to the 20mg a day of prednisone was going to start making me feel a little bit better. Felt like my "moon face" & swelling maybe had been going down slightly. This morning I look & feel as swollen as ever. Back to looking like a Cabbage Patch Kid or Campbell's Kid. I also can't really monitor my asthma because the prednisone is most likely helping my lungs. I wish I were off this stuff.
I love how it has taken me an hour to write 3 paragraphs because I had to correct a bunch of errors. Chris is up now & the cats are on the move. I already took my levothyroxine so I should be able to eat now. I was close to pouring myself a glass of OJ in my morning haze but glad I didn't. (NO food with the levothyroxine until an hour after.) I know grapefruit juice is a big no no with this medication but I love the stuff & I think a few docs have said if I drink it later in the day or at night it's ok. I'll have to do more research.
My neck, shoulders & fingers hurt so much right now. Could be the weather too. Supposed to have storms rolling through today. I think it will be a good day for some reading, letter writing & crafts. Maybe.
