wow your daughter sounds like my twin..moon face HORRIBLE acne gained weight, but im 16 so a little older. although im not scared of my future, im scared of what kind of problems im going to have when i get older from being on these meds. ive read on here that being on pred. for 4 months is considered long term use and ive already been on it for about
three. it just seems like everytime i get a little worse my doctor steps up the pred dose and then when i get better he starts tapering down. its this never ending cycle. ive only been diagnosed with this for about
3 months and im still getting used to having it. a lot has changed, the way i eat, what i do, when i do it, its crazy and really hard. is your daughter getting homeschooled? or is she still going to school full time? i was homeschooled for the last half of the year and nxt yr im only going to go half a day. keep me updated on how your daughter is doing. hope all is well and good luck with everything.
