I have been on and off steroids for months. In April, they put me on 40mg of Prednisone a day. They just recently lowered it to 30mg because I was experiencing such bad side effects. I am no where near to being off of it and I don't know how much more I can take. I don't recgonize myself in the mirror anymore, the bloating, weight gain, fat redistrbution, (and just about every other side effect that they list) are seriously taking a toll on my emotional health. I feel so helpless as it is since I can't do the things I used to and am limited by the fatigue and weakness. Has anyone else gone through this? If so, how did you get through it? I am getting so depressed and it is to the point where I don't want to leave my house. I hate going out in public, I hate the strange looks people give me, and I am miserable.
