“You don’t look THAT fat.”

Saw a couple of friends for the first time in a month tonight. They know I’m taking prednisone, they saw me at the beginning of high dose when the weight piles on like quicksand. I stopped by their house tonight with a big basket of strawberries fresh from the farmers market, and as we caught up (and I sipped water) one of them said, out of the blue, “You know… you don’t look THAT fat. A lot of it is in your face and neck and shoulders.” Because that makes it so much more attractive.

Stupid lupus.
