Appetite gain.....hmmmm do I even have an appetite yet ?... emoticon

Increased thirst..... Ummm hello I'm diabetic.. .... emoticon

Frequent urination.... I drink 10 - 14 glasses of water a day .. what do you think.... emoticon

    My hat is definitely off to you, finding things to like about poison ivy. Having spent every summer of my childhood wrapped in wet gauze, I sympathize. Evil stuff.

    I hope the itching doesn't drive you crazy. It's great that you have a sense of humor about the whole thing. I've been on courses of prednisone a number of times and have never had any noticeable reaction to it.
