Advice & Tips: I LOVE my steroids. I wish I could take them more often, but there are too many reasons not to from what I understand. I guess it's hard on the body...but the results are so good, I would not be functioning now were it not for the steroids. On the steroids, minus the EXTREME fatigue I have, I feel great & fully functional.
