Hiding Nuts

One of my good friends recently moved to New York City for a job and had nowhere to stay so I arranged for her to stay with my grandmother until she can find a place. I also recently just purchased a new computer (a lovely, wonderful MacBook Pro) and it comes with a camera built in. So I decided to step into 2010 and download Skype and spoke with my friend who is staying with my grandmother last night. She brought her computer into my grandmother's room so that I could speak to her as well. While speaking with my grandmother she informed me that my face looked fat. Thanks, grandma, for you honesty.

I didn't think that this was too much of an issue until last night when I was talking with my grandma. I'm playing around with the idea of starting a Youtube channel about lupus as well so I decided to do a test run today. After I recorded it and started playing it back I realized that my grandma was right. My cheeks are looking very reminiscent of a chipmunk hiding nuts. Sigh, I really hate this stuff.

Since I am feeling pretty vain right now and am a little horrified at what I just saw, I'm not sure I will continue with the videos until I can get my cheeks to look a little more normal. Of course, maybe having chipmunk cheeks would be better for the videos because they are something those with lupus and other autoimmune diseases often have. If I do decide to continue with the Youtube channel I will be sure to post a link to it here as well.

I remember a couple years back when I was on steroids, my appetite had increased and one day just as I was about to eat something, my dad said you need to watch your weight. I cried and cried. It was so upsetting so I know how you feel.
