Yeah, nursing was like free reign to sit around for twelve hours a day stuffing my face with every kind of baked treat and pastry known to man. I never even liked cakes etc much before, but it was like, he was born, I ate a sandwich, and then ate cake for a year. It was insatiable. I'd be thinking about donuts while eating cake, and thinking about danishes while eating the donuts, and so on. I always had a whole buffet of sugary carbs on the coffee table in front of me. It got a bit better when I was done nursing, but man...it was actually kind of scary.

I could just say that I'm on "Meth" and amphetamine (my adderall), just can't say that too fast and have it come out like methamphetamine ) It turns out it's a steroid. I can already see my skin starting to turn green and baby Huey's shirt is starting to rip. I'm going to be a MONSTER before this week is up!!!
methylprednisolone otherwise known as a a medrol dose pak. You start out with like 7 pills the first day and then it decreases every day. It hits you with a high dose of steroids for the anti-inflammatory properties and then tapers off. It can be very effective in the acute phases of back/disc issues (actually many musculoskeletal issues/injuries) . I was put on one back in November and it took my pain from a 7 continuous to a 2-3. Hope it works for you.

I hope it works. After reaching my limit of epidurals I'll take anything that works.

I really couldn't help myself. I saw it while wandering around, and it made me think of you.

How'd you make yourself laugh?
