Ode to prednisone

Y'know, prednisone is a great little drug. It gives me insomnia and TONS of energy. As a working college student, these two things come in quite handy.

Granted, the downside is that in another month or so, I'll be as swollen as a blow fish. Also, from having to take so many steroids over the years, I'll end up with glaucoma at 40 and a broken hip at 50. Fun times.

I guess I'll just have to enjoy the extra energy while it lasts, then hope that I can find a good orthopedic surgeon in 20 years.

Wish me luck. :)

Not to mention that you need to go off prednisone very slowly....if you don't want to end up like....euh....a LDA's worst nightmare....

Oh good lord, the tapering is the worst part. It's going to take me 8 weeks to get off this stuff. Bleh.

What a beautiful ode... I also look forward to reading your haiku on the artistic merits of the classic film, Napoleon Dynamite! ;-)
