I had another round of eye injections. I was on Prednisone, so the injections were not the worst part of my day. I am back to being so dizzy that I can’t walk down the hall without swaying into walls, and six hours of sleep is a good night. Along with the extreme dizziness and insomnia, I also feel agitated and my blood glucose is wildly out of range every dy, both high and low.

The renal specialists nurse assured me that all this is normal for someone taking this hideous drug. If it improves my kidney function and helps me avoid dialysis it will be worth it.

Of course, that would mean that I have sarcoidosis, a totally weird disease I’d rather not have.

On the other hand, if it does nothing, I will have spent a month feeling like I’m being poisoned, for no good reason.

I have not been getting a full work week accomplished; 30 hours a week is about all I can manage. I also have not been getting housework or self care done. I am making progress on my Christmas gift project, though. That’s something.
