I feel like I shouldn't complain, what with the things others are going through but I am so tired of everything and I just need to vent. Since I have been on Valtrex my eyes are becoming very dry, painfully so. Also, this morning I woke up to find my skin is starting to break out. The last thing I need right now is acne. It seems I get over one side effect and then another side effect pops up. I know it may be stupid to complain about acne but it is a visible reminder of what is wrong with me. I am so sick of having CML, of having Wegener's, of all the medications I have had to take and am still taking over this last year for both conditions. I am sick of having to worry about both conditions, about getting a good response from my meds for CML and about losing my response from my meds for Wegener's. Does it ever end? Everything just feels out of control in my life right now. Before last Feb.I was living my life, minding my own business and now my body seems to be falling apart. Every month I hope my PCR decreases and every 2 months I hope my ANCA (test for Wegener's) remains negative. Everythng just seems overwhelming right now, perhaps tomorrow will be a better day. Thanks for letting me vent.
