Hello friends.

I need y’all to pray for me. Please.

I’ve been sick with pneumonia/bronchitis since late September. I’m on the mend, but not there yet.

The steroid (Prednisone) is helping with my lungs, but causing some pretty awful side effects, such as:

1) blurry vision
2) CRAZY mood swings
3)low potassium (confusion, uneven heart rate, extreme thirst, increased urination, leg discomfort, muscle weakness or limp feeling)
3)buzzing in your ears, anxiety, confusion, chest pain, shortness of breath, uneven heartbeats
4)acne, increased sweating, dry skin, thinning skin, bruising or discoloration;
5)spinning sensation;
nausea, stomach pain, bloating, and
6) insomnia, which is perhaps the worst part.

People with bipolar disorder NEED to sleep. I’ve only managed to get 4 hours of sleep in the last 2 days. Don’t get me wrong–while I am freaking EXHAUSTED, I can’t sleep. I’ve resorted to Benadryl. I guess I slept pretty freaking hard for those 4 hours, because I woke up to find that I’d wet the bed. Absolutely soaked it. Embarrassing? Yes. Frightening, too. Because the only other wetting incident I’ve had in my adult life, my doctor said ‘if that happens again, I may have to test you for MS.

I’m so nervous to tell my doctor about the incident. But, I know it’s the right thing to do.

Please pray for me.

all the bast to you

this is a pretty old entry but I came upon it, I hope you got some answers. I suffer from insomnia pretty often and I've got an anxiety disorder so I get the need for sleep.
