weight gain

Years ago the endocrinologist said, that after radiation my thyroid, I might put on a "little " weight.

Apparently a "little weight" is equal to 40 pounds on the conversion scale.

I didn't realize the weight was creeping up because I have always worn my clothes 1-2 sizes larger then I am.

I simply grew into my clothes.

NOW circa 2016 the Rheumatologist said I might put on "a little weight" being on the prednisone.

I am NOT falling for that one again!

I'm going to stop wearing clothes!!

Day # 6

Day #6 on prednisone. Not even taking the dose prescribed as I am so sensitive to meds that 5 mg would be waaaay too much.

I took 1 mg for the first few days then bumped it up to 2.5 mg.

1 mg works great, eases my pain and gives me just enough energy to function.

2.5 mg has somehow done something to my radiation damaged taste buds and for the first time since 2008, I can taste things.

what a fucking cruel thing this is....


to be able to taste again but not be able to eat, in order to keep from gaining a shit can of weight from the prednisone.

just fuck you universe and your cruel games.
