I LOVE LOVE LOVE Prednisone!

May 11th, 2011 at 12:53 am

I have been really sick for 7 days. Head cold that went into the lungs...and with asthma, thats not a good thing. So today I went to the doctor and asked for help. She gave me prednisone and antibiotics...and within two hours I have stopped coughing and feel human again. THANK GOODNESS. I cant believe the difference tonight. WOW.

I have so much catching up to do and a major burst of energy...but Ive been down this road enough to know that overdoing it now is asking for trouble. So I will take it easy and bask in this wonderful ok-ness.

DD1 is cracking me up. She watched ONE EPISODE of the new extreme coupon show and is a NEW WOMAN when it comes to shopping. She is doing awesome..not extreme like the show...but very conscientous about coupons, shopping and money. She is learning how to shop at Walgreens and Rite-Aid like Retire at 50...and Im proud of her progress. Her enthusiasm is rubbing off on we shall see where this leads.

I had to have a tough talk with DS about the business. It had gotten to the point where I was loaning (giving) the business 800-1000 a month...and I honestly dont have that much disposable income. I was beyond extended and finally told him no more. The business either makes it or it doesnt this year. It was a tearful meeting, but I had to plug the hole and get back to saving for my retirement. The summer is always plentiful for we shall see how he does. And I will slowly climb out of the hole I dug trying to help.

Funny story that some of you women friends might understand...

I was at the doctor today and she asked if I was having sweats with the cold. I laughed pretty hard and asked her if she could tell me how to differentiate between sweats from a cold and sweats from being almost 50...which are non-stop anymore. She chuckled and said I get ya- nevermind that one. LOL.

Seriously. feels somewhat back to normal...thank you prednisone!

    Prednisone is a miracle drug. Glad it is helping!

    Glad you are feeling better. I went thru menopause at age 44 and it was over very quickly. No sweats at all!

    I'm glad to hear your daughter is getting a positive experience from watching that show. The general consensus in the couponing community is that it's having a negative impact. I've certainly cut back on my shopping since that show aired. It's not helping those of us who've been regular couponers for a while.

    dmontngrey...I can TOTALLY understand why. I can see poeple totally taking advantage of the system and ruining it for everyone. I disagree with buying everything on the shelves just because you can. Others want an opportunity for a deal...

    She definately is getting negative responses from some oft he checkers who anticiapte the worst...Obviously, some are already creating grief.

    But she is plugging along and making small strides...not to clear the inventory, just to save her family money where she can.
