    Prednisone is hard, and can make you feel like your going crazy. When I was on it I was looking like k was borderline pregnant. Eat small snacks to feed satan (I call them satans tic tac ). If you feel like you’re cracking with the hormones it gives it’s okay. It’s normal.

    I gained some weight with steroids. Still, the pros overcome the cons for me. They’re really the only thing that works when I’m in a flare

    I didn't get any weight gain while on prednisone, but I did have severe emotional fluctuations. It was really hard for me, especially because I didn't know what was happening at the time. I wish you all the best! Prednisone is hard to deal with. I wish you all the best 💕
