So, i'm not going to lie- on Friday I started taking 4mg of predinisone twice a day, even though I know its probably not the best idea. Im sure my liver is screaming at me and writhing in pain from the synthetic drugs im pumping into it, but guess what? My face has calmed down a ton. You know its been bad when you wake up and think,
"The man who has seen me push another human being from my vagina is going to see me without makeup for part of today!"
Excuse the vulgaraity, but it's the one thing that I can add to make you understand teh extremeness.
Now, by no means is my face *clear*. There have still been a few little things pop up here and there, but they have been like a bad one night stand, in a good way. Not in the good way that it happened, but more the 'wake up in the morning and you think, "Man, im glad I didnt give him my phone number..... or tell him my name." way.
Not that I've ever had to think that.
So, I think after today i'm going to quit taking the pred. I somehow got about 5 days ahead of myself on this blog, and it would have made today day 21, and thats just not true. It did however give me some extra hope, because I've read that on average, after one month women start seeing an improvment, and that I was getting past the common IB point for a lot of women on here.... but it would seem that if I were average, NOW would be the time. NOW and all this week. We will see. Maybe it hit me early. Or maybe there isn't really an IB, and it was just the fact that i've been so stressed over everything.
As for the stress? I am feeling much better. Im still feeling pretty lazy from the additional 50 mg in the am, but I dont feel like tossing my baby out the window, or stabbing hubby in the eye with the turkey baster because he put extra salt on my homemade-perfect meal.
I have an OB appt coming up on the 26th.....I think. Thats when i going to discuss the addition of Yaz, which initially was to help with the breakouts, but now since the spiro, its like...well.....I'll spare the gory details.
