Are you on medication?

Aside from vitamins, are you on any other medication? I mean, taking it everyday? I am taking prednisone aside from my vitamins daily and sometimes I awfully take them like am going to throw up already. But thinking about the consequence of not taking it would force me to do so. I get muscle weakness and feels feverish during the day if I don't take them. How about you? Do you have any daily medications? I have SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus) that is why I maintain prednisone which is a steroid.

wow, lupis is nasty (so i have heard). i take ibprofin for the constant pain i am in (due to no cartlidge in my knees), plus a sleeping pill for night and an inhalor when i need it (asthma) but i manage because i dont want to go on narcotics for pain relief.

Isn't ibuprofen a narcotic? Anyway, thanks for the comment. Lupus is pretty much nasty at times, but I try my best to live a normal life because I still have my daughter. She is still young to loose a mom. It is not enough for me that her father will be taking care of her because it is different with us moms who really takes care of our kids properly.

okay. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope and pray that you will be well because it's so hard to be working or doing some activities when you are not feeling well. All you want to do is lie down and rest when you are weak and this would hinder you from doing your job or even the things that you love to do which require your strength. Thanks for the comment and have a great day.
