All the stuff that fits

“She came back.”  – David

When I had my first bout of demyelinating disease (Transverse Myelitis), Dr Z put me on a course of SoluMedrol, a megadose of IV steroids.  Because time was of the essence this go-round, he chose to go with oral prednisone rather than wait to schedule the IV sessions.  According to my most recent pharmacy class at the University of Google Medical School, an average adult dose of prednisone is 5 mg to 50 mg.  I got twelve 50-mg tablets in the morning and twelve more at night for the first five days, a whopping gram-plus of jittery insomniac moon-faced goodness.  Needless to say, I have not been feeling like myself.  Sitting at the table for a meal would get me so wound up that I’d collapse in heart-racing madness for a couple of hours at a stretch.  If I haven’t been returning your calls, that could be why.

I’ve been tapering off the prednisone for about a week, but yesterday was the first day that I had the slightest bit of energy. Determined as I am to kick this releasing process into gear, I decided to start with releasing clutter from the kitchen.  (The steroids have also made me ravenous and I was pretty much going to be hanging out in there all night, anyway.)  Four drawers and a couple of cupboards later, I’d had a revelation.  I was looking for outliers – the mismatched mugs, the bowls without lids, the single measuring cup – but I let my eyes glide right past the fact that I have three full sets of measuring spoons, three sets of measuring cups and – so help me – four whisks.  Because, of course, they are all different, all unique in their own special had-to-have-it way, and they all FIT.  Yeah, I’m going to need to look at that a bit more deeply…
