Vance's Story...

In April of 1997 I was diagnosed with Lupus, Scleroderma, Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Myofascial Pain, Intractable Chronic Pain and have a list of other side effects and medical problems such as pulmonary hypertension, hypertension, heart failure, etc.

I was given large amounts of Prednisone injections and pills. I was not told of the side effects at that time and I didn't have the internet to look at any information.

It has caused me to have Cushing's. I want others to read my story and see before and after pictures of what happens when you are on large amounts of steroids over long periods of time. I still take prednisone as needed several times a year.
