Hey Heather and other members,
Like Heather, I can usually be found on the UC forum, the reason I have popped up here is because yesterday my doctor told me I was suffering from depression, I was signed off work for 7 days told to take in some walking and light exercise then to go back next Monday so we can get me fixed
I have been on Prenisolone for over 2 years, it would appear that I'm steroid dependant because everytime I try to come off it completely my symptoms return hence I am told to get back on it :-(
I thought that my decreased activity, sad feelings, crying when alone, insomnia, constant tiredness, angry moods and lack of apetite were all a result of the medication but my GP thinks differently, so my advice to you Heather is exactly te same as ozfm has said, get to your GP sharpish and ask for his/her advice and help, of course as you and I both know the symptoms of Prednisolone can affect us in that way, but a professional counsellor or excellent GP should be able to see through that and recognise when something else is wrong, then begin a treatment plan.
