Today is my third day on the prednisone for this awful reaction I had to who knows what! Yesterday I had my protein shake early am and then some oatmeal for lunch with peanut butter and fruit, and off to the hospital I went to be with mama. By supper time I was absolutely starved to death! Now my protein shake has 30 grams of protein in it, and my oatmeal with the peanut butter etc about 14 gms. It's the same basic menu I eat a lot of days and usually by supper time I am a bit hungry, but not uncomfortably so. But yesterday, ohh my!!! I was so hungry it was terrible, I felt literally like I could eat everything in sight! My son came to the hospital and I said we have got to go get something to eat, I am starved. We went to Hardees. Now I never order large fries etc because since this new eating healthy life I just cannot eat that much, my stomach gets so full fairly quickly. But I was so hungry, I ordered a bacon cheeseburger, BAD BAD BAD!! With a large fry and large diet drink. I told my son, you can have whatever I don't eat and take it home with you for later or tomorrow, because normally I eat only a few fries, and maybe 1/2 the sandwich and then he or my other son if he is with me, basically will have my left overs for a meal for later. I cut my burger in half and took out a few fries, we sat and ate and talked, but I was soo hungry that when I finally started to feel that full feeling, I had already eaten the WHOLE sandwich and most all the fries!! Lawd help me, I still have the rest of today and 6 more days on this prednisone! But I have to tell you honestly, and I know it's the prednisone, but that felt like and tasted like the best meal in the world. And I know it wasn't!! But ohhh my ohh my lol. If anyone has any tips on taming the prednisone beast PLEASE tell me what they are!!
