    In 1997, my then-husband's therapist suggested to me once (during a marriage counseling session) that I might possibly have Seasonal Affective Disorder.. Easy enough to ignore that when I was living in California, but since I had to return to Ohio in Jan, 2012 (to take care of one of my cats here, who was ill with kidney failure himself...and crossed the Rainbow Bridge December 17, 2012), this Seasonal Affective Disorder has just been kicking me in the head!!!! Not to mention the extreme depression and sadness over having lost my cat (Jerry...of all my four cats, Jerry was THE most loyal to me, and was my soul-mate kitty...I have not been a fully functional human being since Jerry's passing)... Then, in February, my Disability benefits were cut (thanks to the slow Post Office, getting my warning letter to me late!!!! As though my life were not falling to pieces already, then that had to happen!!!!) Due to my transplant, of course I would have to return to the work force soon anyway, but I have NOT intended to stay in Ohio while returning to work...not that the Social Security Administration could possibly understand that!!!! GRRRRRRRRRR!!!! So, here I am, looking for legitimate work from home, with the economy the way it is???? Geez, and I suppose people are going to wonder why I am such a mess, emotionally and otherwise???? 2013 has been the year from hell for me, and PLEASE do NOT start judging me or telling me not to swear!!!!

    Having a working kidney, for almost three years now...increased appetite as a result of the transplant, and also the Prednisone has caused this weight gain.. I am trying VERY hard to lose this extra weight, but it is very difficult, almost impossible!!

      I'm on 10 mg a day of the Prednisone.. I do about 30 minutes of walking as many days as I can, but so far, have not lost any weight.. Thanks for asking, and I hope you are having a good day, also!
