A better day

I'm feeling much better today. The fever, headache and chills have gone away, and I slept very well last night. That always seems to help. Still feeling slightly overwhelmed, but I guess that is to be expected. I had a follow up with my Primary Doc today, and it was actually reassuring. He says I can take Tylenol, as long as I don't overdo it and take it more than a couple of times a week. That should help with the headaches at least. Also, the pain reliever my Gyn prescribed is not an anti-imflammatory, so I can take it as needed for the endo pain. Whew! That will help matters greatly while I'm on the Prednisone. I have decided to keep going on W.W. At the very least it will keep me from gaining a ton of weight back, and I eat much healthier when I am on it. I have lost sixteen pounds so far! That feels great. Thank you so much for all of the kind and encouraging comments. They truly do help. I have friends that I have known for years who don't seem to have the right words of support, but you guys always do. Thank you! I am working very hard on taking it one day at a time. I know this will be O.K.

Glad to hear you are feeling better... I think just knowing you can take a Tylenol when you need one would be a huge relief!
