It's only been a few weeks since I was put back on prednisone and already the dreaded "buffalo hump" is back. Yes, I overeat and I'm 25-30 pounds overweight right now. I'm misery eating and find myself putting things in my mouth I don't even want. And now the hump at the base of my neck is growing again. This stime it's really huge and is starting to push my neck forward. It's painful physically and emotionally. I know how I look. I'm fat and now I have this hump growing again. The thing is visible. When it was bad before (I lost 50 pounds two years ago and it went way, way down and disappeared entirely when I went off pred) people would ask with a horrified voice "what's THAT on your neck??"

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr, I'm not helping myself. I know that. I'm venting, not looking for sympathy. I just have to groan about this somewhere, and this seems like a perfect spot. My lungs are still bad. My reflux is raging and I can't sleep because of it (2 a.m. here now). I'm just miserable.

I know the sun will rise, the pain will fade into a steady roar I can handle and life will go on. But right now I hurt so bad physically and emotionally.....this is no fun. I am seriously glad I have this place to come and vent. Thanks for listening.
