Fabulous Friday

Chronic illness and medications change us in various ways. Hopefully they improve our health to some degree. Sadly side effects come with every medication out there. If you are chronically ill there is a good chance you have heard of the lovely medication prednisone. Most people have a love hate relationship with prednisone.

Today I am going to address only one of the side effects of prednisone. Moon face also known as chipmunk cheeks. This occurs because prednisone makes the body retain salt and water. The face swells up and becomes round. In perspective moon face is honestly not that bad. It is simply annoying.

Moon face tends to effect self image, negatively. If you are dealing with moon face currently, you are not alone, I’m right there with you. Yes, it stinks. It is difficult to deal with. Remember though you are on this roller coaster ride of a medication for a reason. It is tor help improve your health and to help you feel better. Hopefully it will throw you into remission quickly. No matter how round your face is you are still you and you are absolutely beautiful! Neither you beauty or your worth is measured by how you look today or how you use to look before your illness attacked. You are an amazing person, with so many talents, you are a warrior, you are courageous, and so much more.

I know many girls, myself included enjoy wearing some make up from time to time. You are perfect just the way you are. Beautiful without make up. If you do wear make up I want to share a few YouTube predisone make up videos with you. I personally do not wear make up everyday. However every so often I like to pretend to be normal. Wear make up, do my hair nicely, and dress up a bit.
