I fell off the edge of a flare into full blown flare. It was nearly 290 days but unfortunately I go back to zero and start over. I am not at my base line yet and I know I have to be very kind to myself as finding base line again will be difficult and it may be different. It seems every base line changes from time to time. I did increase my prednisone to try and help the symptoms and feel better but then I have to come back down off of it which is challenging for my body. This body needs things right all the time and I have not been handling my stress and work life very well. Is this my trigger? Is travel my trigger? Is adding hours of yoga to an already full day my trigger? I don’t know what my trigger or triggers are but I do know that I am starting over and have to take it 1 day at a time again.
Truth is, I feel completely bummed by it. I forget sometimes that I even have MCTD until I am quickly reminded and my body decides that now is the time to stop react and remind me to take it easy and get things under control. Until I find this control I will be resting, walking and doing my yoga. Speaking of walking, I also have my stats for the week
