Should this really surprise anyone at this point?

I’ve had to abort two separate migraine headaches now with prednisone… the wrecking ball.

Surprisingly, this doesn’t work extremely well on my lungs any more, but it does work reasonably well on my migraines, helping me restore some semblance of normalcy to my life after I’ve literally tried everything else at my arsenal. Since my insurance rejected my pain management clinic’s request for me to start Botox treatments to the tune of us having to play around with them appealing that, I’m going to ask about starting prednisone “long-term”, either every day or every other day, in the interim as we fight insurance for Botox…

I’m well aware of the side effects of prednisone, having needed it for my asthma as much as I have in the past. But there are days when I don’t want to be confined to bed (or extremely close to that), not being able to do much of anything or what I really want to do that day, so if that means literally sucking it up and starting oral steroid treatment for my migraines, I am amenable, moon face and weight gain be damned.
