    I had to go through my 9th grade year with my face puffed up on prednisone (prednisone being an anabolic steroid, it was the treatment for the first of my many terrible medical problems at the time)

    That was also the same year my parents decided I should get braces.

    So there I am. Six feet tall, weigh 125 lbs. And my face looks like I've been storing food for the winter. And my smile was...metallic.

    I tried asking a few ladies out and was harshly rejected. I was ugly as shit. I felt terrible.

    As a result, I don't think I asked another girl out on a date until I got to college.

    A few years ago, I was peddling art at a local street festival, and I was wearing these pants that had a really crappy zipper that just unzipped itself all the time (I still have them, but I need to hold my fly closed with a key-ring looped through the zipper and onto the button)

    for an indeterminate amount of time, I was sitting at my booth with my fly wide open, AND unfortunately, my boxers unbuttoned. Now, I think for the most part, the general public was protected by my booth, but I'm pretty sure the cute girl selling jewelry next to me got a pretty good view in the good 5-10 minutes I was tanning in the sun.

    Felt a breeze, hastily buttoned myself up, taped my fly closed, and went back to selling my wares.
    Next day I moved my booth to the other end of the street.

    Ugh, prednisone.

    That shits nasty. Last winter I was taking Prednisone and Tussionex (liquid hydrocodone) for a nasty throat infection I had. Everything was good for the first week, I just stayed at home and rode out the day drinking Tussionex and poppin' my prednisone. The prednisone made me feel a bit weird, but not noticeably. Well after that first week, I was feeling a lot better, but still on the meds. I had to go pay the water bill one day, and decided to go early, right after taking my pills. It was a beautiful day out, but things started to go wrong the second I opened the door to the city hall. I started getting all shakey and sweaty, and everything was super bright. I walked in, and handed the bill to the lady real intense-like: "IM HERE TO PAY A BILL". Then just walked out.

    Apparently some people have a reaction to prednisone that is similar to the effect of taking speed.

    I'm one of those people.

    I only took it for two weeks, but all I did was play L4D and TF2 while I was out from school. But my friend is a pharmacy tech and told me shes had the same reaction, and it happens fairly often.

    I took it for a year. You don't even get the puffy side effects from taking it for two weeks.

    And my dosage was huge. I had to wear a medic-alert necklace and everything.

    That was the worst year of my life :<

    Happened to me when I was keylogged once. They changed my email password so that I couldn't contact Blizzard without physically calling them. I called them and within about 15 minutes I had my account locked down and personal account info changed to secure items I had set up after doing a complete scan and kill of my keylogger.

    Was a bitch too, because it took me about a week to get my stuff and characters back. They took my tank and transferred him to another account to be sold, which took the longest of anything to rectify. Once it was all said and done though, I ended up with more money and items that I had lost through Blizzards recovery system. No fun though.

    Put into perspective how vulnerable you can feel when someone gets your personal info and does with it what they please. Luckily they didn't want to tread into the area of federal crimes and left my online banking info alone.

    Gmail should have a forgot my password dealio on the front page that sends an email to the secondary email address you provided when you created your gmail account. As long as you can remember your secondary email you should be able to iron out your gmail that way.

    I got my new meds in, I'm going to get them administered tomorrow.

    I got this nice little email from the manufacturer:
    Serious infections have happened in patients taking HUMIRA. These infections include tuberculosis (TB) and infections caused by viruses, fungi, or bacteria that have spread throughout the body. Some of these serious infections have been fatal. Patients treated with HUMIRA also may be at risk for other serious side effects including certain types of cancers, allergic reactions, hepatitis B virus reactivation, nervous system problems, blood problems, heart failure, and certain immune reactions, including a lupus-like syndrome.

    I may have an extremely morbid sense of humor, but I found it hilarious. The emphasis is theirs, not mine.

    So one of my dogs may be dying. Yesterday he was suddenly super lethargic and unsteady, and after a vet visit he seems to have a very low red blood cell count and they don't know why (He's basically suffocating). He's on steroids and antibiotics now but he's just completely helpless and he just lays in his doggy beg while I have to try to get him water from an eye dropper and carry him out to the lawn every few hours.

    He is so pitiful and all he can so is half-sleep and keep one eye on the front door waiting for his (my) momma to come home from work.

    :(

    I'm super sorry to hear that. My dog just had a similar situation with the lethargy, she couldn't even stand to get any unsteadiness, also the low red blood cells, have they checked for Addison's disease?

    The entire email is a hoot. The rest is saying how great Humira is, but how it's only for people who haven't responded well to any other treatment. It basically reads like a warning label on a last resort. Like they are trying to excise a tumor in my brain with a bullet.

    It's all weird angles and the ear looks like a hinge or something. It sort of looks like it's meant to open and close around his neck. Also, the face is angled up which seems like a strange choice unless he's a ceiling inspecting robot. Aesthetically it bothers me.
