I know we all have a tendency to raid the fridge a little more more than normal when we do the high dose of pred. Well normally I am only on 5mg so I don't have a lot of trouble with grazing! Anyway I just had to share the most rediculous thing I have done in awhile with you. I got up this morning and I tried to straighten up my bed a little. right down at the bottom of my bed a a twinkie LOL. fortunately it wasn't completely open. I must have rolled over on it because it was smashed and partly open but at least the cream filling was still inside but there were crumbs on the sheets. The thing is I have no recall as to how on earth I ended up with a twinkie in my bed. lol. One of these days I'm gonna wake up 50 lbs heavier than I went to bed with cream filling all over my face lol. I can't beleive I actually went sleep sleep walking for a twinkie last night. tongue
love ya

Hahahahahaha, Carol!!!  I'm laughing out loud right now!  That is hilarious. You must have busted a gut laughing when you found that!  I'm picturing a chocolate twinky in a wrapper that resembles a mushed up piece of poop. Hahahaha.....  Okay, I'm a sick-o.  I have a potty brain....
 
So now at least you KNOW you sleep walk!  You'll have to put a lock on your fridge door.  Or set up a video camera to record your "break and enters".  Hahaha....
 
Thanks for the laugh, I need that!

Carol, When I am on big doses of prednisone I will actually dream about food. It's all around me but I can't ever get it for some reason or another! I'm down to 10mg and paying the price to get rid of the weight! I loved your storey! LOL! Judy

Im new to the forum and I just want to say that is funny! I just recently started on prednisone@20mg then had to up it to 40mg and I find my self waking up around 2:00am looking for a bowl of cereal.. I have started to decrease it back to 20mg. I really have alot of questions about meds and what others are going through.

I know this is a couple weeks old, but I woke up last night about 1:30ish just feeling gross. and all I could think of is what I would give for a twinkie right now. It made me smile and I fell back a sleep for a half hour..

LOL sorry I missed this originally. For me a twinkie would trigger my gag reflex (I think it is because all my mother ate when she was pregnant with me was freaking twinkies and she drank pepsi ironically I cannot stand pepsi either). Before my prednisone dose went down I would snack on fruit and veggies and popcorn at all hours of the day and night. I would wake up starving for no good reason. Now I am forcing myself to eat at least 1 time each day for the baby. Sad thing is when I am not pregnant I will go days at a time without eating anything.
