My side effects are unbelieveable. I will litterally eat everything in sight. I stuff myself until I feel like I'm going to explode...and the worst part of it is that I dont realize Im doing it until its done...then about 20 mins later I'm hungry again. Ive gained around 45lbs in the past 3 weeks (I was 155, now at 200lbs, and I'm only 5'3). I can look straight forward and see my cheeks because my face is so swollen. I have the worst acne not on my face tho thank god, but on my underarms that is extremely painful. I can pull out chunks of hair from my head. When I look in the mirror to me I just look like I'm dead, my skin tone is horrible and my eyes are black. I have horrible joint pains, and back pains. I havent slept in 3 days, and when I do its like a half alseep half awake kind of thing, I never feel rested. I'm depressed from it, moody, I just dont feel like myself being on it, just a misreble person because of it...blahhhh haha. Its so crazy that its the one drug that can actually keep me going, but it brings me down so bad. I think tomorrow I'm going to go in and lay it all out on the table for him, and if its the choice between surgery or the pred, then I'm going to choose the surgery, but tell him I do want a second opinion first before we do anything. I'm only 21, so I know that I'm probably not very patient but this is my life that this disease is messing with, and I want to be in as much control as I possibly can with it, without making mistakes. I think at this point though, I am willing to try a surgery again, I do know that theres only so much you can take out..and what happens after too much is taken out, I was just trying so hard to avoid that situtation and chance at this point in my life.
