I think of myself as a positive person, so I hate to sound like a bummer. I found out I had idiopathic hemolytic anemia about 8 yrs ago...had 3 bouts of it over 3 years with prednisone as the only drug to level out the blood differences. Then I was clear for 5 years, with my doctor keeping check on my blood every 3 months. Last year I got very sick with some kind of flu going around and my blood went nuts. We cleared it with prednisone, and then last fall it came back again. I've been on prednisone since November but am now on 2 1/2 every other day. My high is averaging 14-15 but the retic has just dropped to below 2 and it should be around one. My doctor wants me to stay on prednisone for another couple of months, just to be safe. As much as I don't like the long term effects it can have on a body, I agree with him. I have come to have a bit of fear that this can come back as it wants...but I also have it my goal to never have it come back again. (I was 41 when I got it)
