Thanks for checking in Ewizabeth!

After ten years, I KNOW that catching a cold or flu will trigger a relapse without fail after about 5-8 days. So just let me amongst a rooom full of snotty, sneezing kids, and you got yourself a bet! Now, I also know I can stop the relapse once it has started by using prednisone. The big problem with it is that I try to avoid starting too soon as I still have the infection, and want to give my body a chance to kill it off before hitting the immunosuppression.Lyon wrote:I'm not convinced that someone could purposely cause a relapse at will and even if it is possible...
