i agree with celey....call em chipmunk cheeks...i had the moon face n i started to look like i was 10 again. ironically, when i was ten, i was also on prednisone and had those cheeks :o) don't be depressed from the 'roids, xtaex! Whenever you do, go outside and enjoy the great outdoors...i was homebound for many reasons but i always try to keep myself in a positive mood because it REALLY helps...so i go in my backyard and just walk by myself and enjoy the sounds around me. :o) take care and keep smiling, even if it's a moon-kinda-smile.
