While prednisone is not a stimulant, however, it is making me anxious and odd. I am less tired but I feel as if my brain just does not want to function in the manner in which I would like. However, I am taking it along with another medication to combat the effects of Lichen Planus. I have been dealing with this malady for years and although once in treatment, it is now twice over the ten years this disease has invaded my mouth! Since you can’t see it and I have obligations to myself and others you may not even notice that I am hurting 24/7. The problem with silent illnesses is that you the community assume that I am running on all cylinders and although I try to be the SuperWoman of my body, sometimes I have to admit I need help.
I may be a woman but SuperWoman sometimes leaves and I am left alone to face the pain well not letting on to you…However, it is important to communicate what may be affecting those that are in your group. If we don’t use words of explanation not only will we be misunderstood, we will be left to our inner voices that often are not friendly. However, if those unfriendly thoughts are ours why aren’t we changing the tone of the dialogue.
Ponder on this!
