The steroids are good. They let me function without being chronically dizzy. I can sleep at night. I can work. I can take care of my family.
I can't lose weight. My metabolism is completely shot. The 4 pounds I lost while DH was away returned without any change in what I was eating. I made sure to not change so that I could see if there was a pattern. I can have a 3 to 4 pound weight fluctuation from one day to the next with no significant downward trend.
Also, I am watching way too much TV. I have watched more television since January than in all of my life up until this point. I know I am using it as an escape. I am sure that sitting around isn't helping my metabolism.
In the big picture of life, I am better on the steroids than off. I am just frustrated.
