Looking up

I've really struggled with the side effects of Prednisone and how it's affected my moods and my physical appearance. How are some ways you've been managing with meds side effects ?
I stepped on the scale earlier this week and I'm 22kg above my target weight. Before I got my diagnosis and started my treatment I was already above my target weight and struggling to shed a few kilos. I've heard about counting calories and always thought it was overrated. I honestly did give up with my weight at one point but I'm ready to work towards my goal and be comfortable in my skin again, and in my jeans haha. I've started counting calories and I'm trying to stay fixed on doing a 30 minute walk every day. Counting calories allows me to still enjoy my sweet tooth cravings but now I'm more aware of what I put into my body and how I'm using my energy. I'm already feeling better for it. I'm very excited to see my progress over the next few months.

Hi everyone!

Hi! I'm new here and have never talked to people in a website before. I was reading another post about "looking in the mirror"; all of the #Health problems they have, I bet all of us do! I know I do!! I have read in a few places that they believe that childhood trauma is linked to ADHD/ADD, depression, anxiety, etc. The problem I have is, what to do when the meds stop working?! The depression is literally killing me. I have all I've ever wanted, and I can't be happy about it. Wait, that sounds trivial; I don't want it to sound like "you should be happy"; it's that I'm afraid of messing it all up, because that's what I do. I've been dealing with a constant state of #Depression for over 4 YEARS now! My dr won't talk to me about it ("I only do med management"). It's hard to get a good dr b/c I have moved in 3 states within a year! Can I get advice on how to choose a good dr who will actually help me? Thank you for reading my ramblings!
