I hate prednisone :-(

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll. Seems I was prematurely elated that I was showing no signs of the prednisone doses. I now have the swelling. My hands, fingers, neck, face and abdomen are all swollen. Niiiice. Looks great, feels better. Of course the number on the scale has inched up but I don't know if its weight gain or just fluid. Allahu alim.

At any rate, we'll see within the next two weeks. I had a bit of a rough go of it for a few weeks, had alot of pain as well from gastritis. Yippee. :-) So no weigh-in right now. It'll just depress me. I'm a numbers girl, yeah, but I also feel the swelling.

In the beginning, I took photos daily to show the progress of the cushing's syndrome which is the name for what happens when you get high levels of prednisone in your body. So at first, as I said, nothing really changed so I stopped. I think I'll take a photo tonight and if it's a dramatic as I think I'll post the pics for our elucidation. :-)

Please make du'a for me; I really want to lose weight. I do feel a little defeated that I got sick right as I was making good progress and now I feel I've been derailed. Insha'allah I can regain my momentum. Ma salaama...
