    Hi again.
    I used to be a us army flight medic. One of the things that we as flight crew could not use was visine and epinephrine and pseudeo ephedrine due to an effect called rebound. When the meds wear off the swelling would return and what was advised to us, was not to stop all of a sudden, but to taper off.
    Maybe this helps.
    Take care and good luck.

    Yup....I tapered the steroid...3x a day for a week, 2x a day than down to once a day for a week...but the swelling comes back each time :(
    Thanks for your insight though... Im hoping this time it doesn't return....
    Next step might be to an allergist

    Turned 51 end of September. I'd been on WW and was very successful, but then hit 50 and EVERYTHING changed! I can't seem to stick to good eating habits AT ALL. I've been getting bored with food, so grabbing convenience and snacks when I'm hungry without really looking at what I'm eating. And the sad part is that I LOVE different kinds of flavors, and don't mind cooking. But when I have to feed 3 others (husband and 2 teen boys) who are more picky eaters, I fall back on tried and true, and I don't enjoy it as much. I move plenty, whether it's walking, spin bike, or strength training at home. Try to get some yoga or Pilates in every once in a while. I think I realized that all the "free" foods on WW weren't helping me to maintain the weight loss with the metabolism change, so need to get back to actually counting calories so I can lose what I've regained!

    Hello and Happy Friday! I was on MFP awhile ago and am now starting new today. I'm in my early 50s and have many reasons (and several good excuses) why I am not physically fit anymore. I want to look and feel good again soooo bad! I could use some MFP friends!

    Hi all,

    I’m 53 and have started back up on a regular workout routine. I’m just barely 2 weeks in and really struggling with the motivation. I used to be able to push through any tiredness or soreness, but the last few years it’s been hard. I struggle with getting enough sleep so I’m sure that doesn’t help (hormone imbalances lol). Could use an accountability partner, so if you’re needing the same and interested, let me know. 🙂 My husband and I live in AZ on an acre of property with two dogs and eleven chickens 😂 . So between taking care of things at home and time with the grandkids, I keep pretty busy. Energy is always off and on now, and I struggle with keeping the sugary/carb foods down. In the past I’ve always been high energy and very active so I could handle a lot of carbs but not so much now. So between finding the energy to keep up a workout routine and eating healthy, I’ve not been doing as well as I’d like. I’m using MFP in hopes that it will help keep me focused long enough until this all becomes habit again.

    Sooo, I finally managed to pull myself up and make my way over to my weights lol. Got my workout in and it went by fast, which I realized it always does. It’s so hard to remember this when I’m feeling so tired and motivation is lacking! I’ve GOT to remember this! Lol

    Happy weekend middle agers. We made it through another week

    I'm getting pretty used to this arm. I'm cooking and baking and probably walking 5km a day to do daily errands. I'm exhausted at the end of every day between the walking and the Darn sleeping issues but I won't complain in doing great!
