Reduced meds / Party day

Current Meds:
1. Prednisone (20mg for one week)
2. Citalopram 10mg once daily
3. Lorazepam 1mg at bedtime

Current Symptoms
Physical: none
Sensory: Optic neuritis in left eye
Psychological (memory/mood): none
Medication side effect?: elevated pulse

Instead of dropping right down to 4 pills from 12, I decided to take 8 today because I didn't want to have a bad withdrawl on my birthday. I'll save that for tomorrow. It's a big drop in dosage and I was affraid so I just divided it up since I had tons of pills left. I think they over prescribed them or something, not sure really.

That being said, I feel much better today than I have in weeks. I pushed myself a little too hard at Judo last night. It really felt good to break a sweat like that. I need to do that more often now that my pill dosage is coming down. I miss running the most. No, I lied, I miss fighting at Judo the most. Soon I will be able to continue my training full time and find an exercise program that suits my new lifestyle in the making.

I have a lot of prep work to do today so I can't get into anything profound today. But something is brewing in my brain. I promise something interesting is coming very soon. Good thoughts, positive outlook! Good days ahead! Happy birthday me! :)

Happy birthday Doug.
Sorry I didn't make it out, but I forgot to print off the directions when I left to do the data collection (which took a little longer to complete than expected) and I couldn't get back out to New Waterford this eve. We'll have to get together for... something, some other time :)
