sinking

I forgot to post today's symptoms in my last post. In addition to all of yesterday's symptoms, and feeling hungry, today I feel completely drained, just like in the darkest days of my illness. I was planning to go to town today to do some errands and to do some further prep work at home, but so far all I've managed to do is eat, shower, and read a book. My limbs feel heavy, and I'm going from moments of enthusiasm for the MP to moments of worrying if I'll even make it to the starting line. The worst thing is, there's nothing really I can do to feel better, because if I were to start taking the old drug at the old dose again, it would be a week or ten days before I felt better. So I've just got to stick with my plans for starting the MP as soon as I can get it together.

Your fatigue is making you question whether or not you're doing the right thing. Just keep remembering your enthusiasm for the MP before the fatigue set in. You've come a long way!

Thanks, Laurie! Keep reminding me of that, please!

Keep on plugging away! I remember when I was experiencing strongest immmunopathology, and I didn't think I would make it, yet here I am so grateful I didn't give up.
Best,
Paul
