I’ve been detoxing from the extraordinarily high levels of methylprednisonolone I was on for two weeks. I took the last dose the other day. This drug is lethal, people. It really did tamper my lupus symptoms, but it threw me into drug-induced diabetes.
I also have developed some sort of skin rash on my face that makes me look like I got a chemical peel. It burns. It itches. It is uuuuuuuuugly. Remember that episode of Sex and the City when Carrie makes Samantha leave her book party because of her face? YEAH. THAT’S WHAT MY FACE LOOKS LIKE WHEN IT IS UNAIDED BY MAKE UP.
I think I’ve been pretty reasonable. I’m down for being sick, not being able to get out of bed, spending weeks in the hospital, but you do NOT mess with my face! I have enough damned scars, body!
LEAVE THE MONEYMAKER ALONE.
