In brief: Start over

You left out the most important information.
Why taking cortisone? Exactly which med at exactly which dose for how long? Was the cortisone [prednisone?] used to suppress a condition which now emerges again without the cortisone? Do you notice the effects of prolonged, daily, high-dose steroid? Consult the Dr[s] who prescribed the cortisone.
