I started a 40 mg taper a few weeks ago, and before recently, it had been a long time since I had been on it. Man, it does have some wierd side effects, but it seems to really help my initial problems! My self-esteem has sky rocketed as a result of all the weight gain! Last week at the doc I weighed in at 108lbs, and I am 5' 7", so I had lost a few pounds, and that always depresses me. :( But I weighed myself yesterday, and I am 116lbs!! lol Eight pounds in 9 days, haha. I only wish I could stay on Prednisone forever- then at least I would feel somewhat like a "normal" person. Feeling great!
