Sean finally came home yesterday after 3 long weeks. Unfortunatly the massive steriod doses have given him very bloated belly and face and he also developed a skin comaplint that has left him smothered in spots over face. Usually Sean is desperate to get back to school as soon as he discharged but now he wont go because of how he looks. His face is so moonlike he doesnt look like himself , he said to me this morning 'mum can u imagine whats it like to see such a fat spotty face in mirror everyday' . I really dont know what to do or say to make this easier for him, we both know that the steriods are essential but its so unfair that a usually very confident boy wants to hid away at home
Anyone else had similar situation?
