Hello Melissa: :)

Welcome! Wow! You have 2 autoimmune Diseases plus Type 2 Diabetes. You certainly are courageous to be accepting and handling them all. Good for you.

I hope that you have Family and Friends support which is much needed with these diseases. I'm amazed that you were on that much Prednisone. I would wonder what that would do to your blood sugar since you were not a Diabetic at the time. I'm Glad that the meds. that you are using for your Diabetes are working for you. Enjoy your stay. :)
