Hey psoriasis family, I don’t do this often, but I want you to know that right now, at this very moment, I feel like crap. I am briefly taking a medicine called Dexamethasone, which I’m only suppose to be on for 8 days. It clears me up for the most part, but makes me feel like crap in the process. The sad part is, it only clears me up when I’m taking it, after I stop, I break back out. But I can only take it for a few days to avoid big side effects. So whats the point right? (sigh) You tell me…
I’m tired, cranky, depressed, and I lack energy. I have four more days of this medicine to take. I don’t feel like doing anything, not even cooking, one of the many things I enjoy. Luckily I have an understanding husband that is working with me while I go through these side effects. I hate feeling this way.
I would never be able to survive taking this medicine everyday while teaching a classroom full of kids, it would be impossible. Sometimes I feel like I’m better off with the psoriasis, over taking all of this terrible medicine.
Well, this is just a random rant. Have any of you psoriasis conquerors taken Dexamethasone before? What was your experience like?
