Just a quick "thank you" .

β€’17 Replies

Thanks to everyone who answered my steroidal maintenance question.

So far I've learned i might become cranky,have weight issues around my neck,become diabetic,lose sleep,start feeling suicidal ,get moon face,become literally thin skinned ( me ? ,never πŸ™‚) grow even more facial hair than I already do ( any more hair and ill be doing the foxy bingo ads on the tv) have kidney and liver problems,excess acid leading to ulcers, literally do have to go to soecsavers,sleepless nights, get dry skin on my legs 🦡, all the above just to breath easier πŸ€” its still worth it though .One interesting psychological aspect of this steroid use ( after 1 week of 30mg,then the usual tapering course for 15days plus my now 10mg for 4 days) is believe it or not an inclination to have a cigarette πŸ˜€, yup I cant believe it myself butcits true, I never will obviously but it seems the more my breathing improves the more I want a cig.

Once again thanks everyone for taking the time ( which is precious) to answer my query, your all 🌟 's in my book

I have to laugh πŸ˜‚- because you’d think they had found a better steroid that didn’t come with a suitcase full of side effects !!! I totally get it about the cigarette too. Sometimes I wonder if I’d have the breath to puff a cigarette- damn things I stopped over 10 years ago! My biggest regret in life!!! (Smoking not stopping)

Theres baggage with everything these days kate , even drugs lol


Ha Ha , Love your Prognosis Dave, I won't add to it. Have a Good Fag Free day. Much Love. C. XXX

You to cas x

Never mind Dave, it will all be worth it. Wishing you well. Now you come to mention it, I remember Pete yearning for a cigarette back then too. He didn’t succumb though.
