Hi Anne

Thanks for the reply I do read all of them even in my recovery mode, it helps me a lot : ) ......I also think I might try some yoga soon : ) I really just appreciate the time you take to respond and just understanding the steps of getting back on track can be a little tough.

I agree, getting weaned off the steroids makes you feel like you had a set back- I felt wonderful the first week and then once I was off of them I felt like my body collapsed ! It's been a few days but i'm starting to feel a little better. My emotions are high and low, I feel bad for my boyfriend because I know he's not sure when the next dip is coming on the emotional rollercoaster- one minute I feel ok the next I'm in pain and tired and frustrated-
I am down to one anti seizure med a night so I do actually feel better but still tired yet trying go stay active getting up in the morning, showering and throwing on clothes other than sweat pants ! I've been going out for a few hours a day and feel good about it, trying to stay focused on myself and not my job that waits for me to come back (I get texts weekly from them) I have 3 more weeks to enjoy off and re cooperating so I look forward to feeling better each day to do so-
I do hope you're right and our posts help any new guys on this site, I really hope that my story can somehow help or even inspire someone because I know it's not common what I've been through at my age.
The writing for me is is also therapeutic so ramble on Anne and I will return the message !

All the best : )
