Hate the steroids but cant get tapered off of them. IG isnt working well, PlEx they only want to do when I get really bad (and is 10 days in hospital)

Prednisone: less patient with people, cant sleep at night, glaucoma, cataracts, some other blurry vision the docs attribute to it, type 2 diabetes, GI upset and a few others I am probably missing…what a nasty drug.

Insurance wont approve the immunosuppressant they want to use to replace the steroids.
