Bathroom: just the enema
Eleven. That is how many prednisone I took this morning. Hooray! The countdown begins. I am so happy to be starting this taper.
I am a little sensitive. On the report that the doctor completed he indicated that I could go back to work today. I keep revisiting this in my mind. I am taking this as a judgment by the doctor rather than what it probably is (simply a statement that my colon is better). I know I am too weak, in too much pain and stress to go back to work. I will just have to go to my family doctor and discuss a plan to get me back to work that considers the whole person and not just my evil colon. I will also work on my cognitive scripts and convince myself that no one is judging me and it is okay to take the time that I need to be well.
The week got away from me. I can't believe it is already Friday. I have studying to do for my exam and I am way behind schedule. I will have to cram over the weekend. So much to learn and so little time.
I just had my regular breakfast of juice, tea and ensure. I don't feel hungry but I suspect that I will get a raging case of the munchies later (like I did last night). I think that is from the pred.
So far on the forum I belong to, I have had a few people suggest some foods to start with as I begin to add to my diet. I was so excited when one member suggested avocado! I loves those. I also was told that cooked carrots and peas, sweet potatoe fries, and spinach.
