I was just going through some pictures and found one of me from last year when I had some major moon face.  Yay for being off prednisone!!

Haha, I can't wait until I can take some pictures without my moon face! I actually took one when it was at its biggest....and I posted it on myspace....I had soo many people asking who it was, or how I edited it to look like that.  I had a side by side pic of me normal and me with moon face.  Its unreal.

I just started taking prednisone again and am considering taking a picture a day to watch the evolution of my face (assuming I'm on it long enough for it to get moonish). The first time I was on pred (7 months), I didn't even notice until after the fact that it had gotten rounder. I guess I was lucky, probably since I wasn't on too high a dose. Let's hope I'm not on it nearly as long this time!

During the summer of 2006, I completed the Adacolumn Apheresis clinical trial, which helped me enjoy 2+ years of remission and more than one year med-free. During spring and summer of 2009 the symptoms slowly but surely began to return, and now I'm flaring again.

I never noticed it myself at the time, but apparently everyone else did haha. And I see pictures like that one now and can't believe I wasn't more self conscious. I was on it for 7 months also, but the picture I'm looking at now couldn't have been more than a month after I started.

Poor Nanners! I almost had to get my passport picture taken while I was on prednisone, but it turns out it didn't need it for a cruise to the Bahamas. I would have died, though lol.

Thats strange, My moon is never in the picture.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
