Done With Prednisone!

Hi there,

I've been on prednisone for the last four months and have written a few blogs about the terrible side effects of prednisone that I have experienced asking others how they deal with it. Thankfully I can officially say that today is my last day of prednisone - so that is something to be entirely thankful for.

So, what I've learned about the prednisone - it does make you temporarily insane at times, but that goes away. Likewise, the weight gain and the chubby cheeks go away to!

Thank you all for your encouragement and replies, at times that is what has helped me the most to get through the prednisone days.

Thank you!
