One Step Forward Nineteen Back...

Last week one of my FB acquaintances was asking for info on taking prednisone and whether the side effects were worth it for a sinus infection and I was all "btdt no biggy" and everyone else was all "Noooooo prednisone = scary shit".  Then the very next day I went to the podiatrist because I have achilles tendonosis and achilles tendonitis (see also - my body hates me) and she put me on a prednisone taper for twelve days to reduce the inflammation.  I thought "oh hahaha I was just talking about this".

Then all this week I've been a crazy ball of anxiety who can't breath and can't sleep and can't function and finally today I said "hmmm, I just wonder if that's a side effect of the prednisone" and I hit up my bff Google and wouldn't you know that there are 1,001 articles about how prednisone will jack you up if you already have anxiety issues.  It figures.  I seriously cannot solve one problem without causing another.  Now I'm mid-taper and you can't just go off this stuff, you really do have to taper.  SO, even with my phone phobia I had to call my doctor and beg for more xanax which I just swore to him I didn't need anymore.
