This is a Really Real Mental Health Post.
Last Monday I got a cortisone shot in my knee.
According to the posts I’ve written, last Tuesday night and Wednesday is when the anger, the suicidal, and the self harm thoughts started.
I had been super stable on these meds, work had been going great, and I was using healthy coping methods when I wobbled a little bit.
But I went off the deep end, and I wonder if it was the steroids.
Having a reason would make me feel so much better. I see my pdoc in about an hour and I’d really rather not make med changes if there’s a reason for this hiccup. I’d rather not mess with the stability that has been in place for awhile. I’m going ot ask her if she thinks a localized steroid shot could have effected my entire system.
They said it would effect my blood sugars, so I’m almost positive it could.
That was one hell of a roller coaster.
But I’m feeling better today.
One thought on “Steroids”
I don’t know about localized shots, but oy can prednisone pills mess with people. It’s such a whammy. Ugh.
