I feel better than great. I think it might be from the dose of prednisone that was prescribed for me to relieve inflammation in my lungs. I have experienced these effects before. Besides helping my lung inflammation, most or all of my usual daily aches and pains are gone. Any little skin conditions are cleared up. I feel strong. I am sleeping less, feeling stronger, rarin’ to go! I feel 20 to 30 years younger.
I can understand why athletes take steroids and it helps them win. When my body doesn’t hurt and I have more energy, I can go farther and faster than ever before. I am rarin’ to go.
The problems with taking steroids are great and serious. There are many possible dangerous side effects. The medication can be taken only for a short period of time and then must be tapered off.
Unpleasant withdrawal symptoms are common. If I had unlimited use of this drug, I could become addicted and it could kill me. I am now in the tapering off process. I will have to do that. My aches and pains and other little irritations will come back. I am sad about that.
I will greatly miss my prednisone.
