Me too. You are not alone. Bad day for me as well.
Glad we have some place to talk. People who understand. Please feel free to vent as it helps me too. I feel less alone. I hope this holds true for you as well. I'm glad you are venting...please continue.
Want to be human again...to run...to work...to breath the free air.

Yes be human....Wake up running and singing and dancing...I wake up and lay in bed looking at the window like why did I even wake up? I have never ever felt like my life wasnt worth living...And to be honest prednisone has never been this hard on me...I dont know if it is because I am older (late 20's) vs. late teens but I hate this drug more than I hate Crohns...
My mind has never been more unsettled in my entire life...

Hate prednisone too. got as low as 1 mg but now back on 15(I'm a bit older than you~30 something, but still feel like I'm in my 20's). It make my tummy better, but everything else worse. Didn't need it in my 20's so not sure about the age thing.

Doc, you made me feel better today. Thank you. I look at flowers when I am down. (today is cold and rainy though and not a lot of flowers). I don't want to tell you to "cheer up" because, days like today really suck. All I can say is that I am here for you to vent and I am glad that you are. Days like today are so devastating that it is hard to remember the good days.

I hate my body too, hate what the prednisone has done to it. A stranger is reflected in the mirror. I hate that I can't run. But I live for that day. I want to feel the wind on my face...

By the way, tears are a good catharsis. Helps clear out the eyes...the head...the soul.

Thankfully I have never been prescribed Prednisone cuz reading everything people say about that drug on the forum it sounds horrible! I have always taken Entocort for my inflammation, and have found the mood swings to be sporadic and quite a pain in the butt, but I don't think it's anything compared to the emotional upheaval for people taking Prednisone.
Take it one day at a time everyone...we all have our sad days where we don't want to live one more day with this awful disease, but it will get better. Please stay strong and keep up the faith.

Hang in there guys, it'll get better...I has issues with that too, for me exercising regularly really made a huge difference all around.

Keep your chins up!

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

I exercised a little too hard yesterday. Did 4 miles on the elliptical!!!!!!! Walked a 5K the day before. Hadn't been able to do this in over 2.5 years.

But I'm paying for it. On my third vicodin and I so dearly want to come off it. I cannot sit or even lie on my back. Bleeding a lot, both yesterday and today. Nothing seems to make the pain in my bum go away.

Thought it was just the lentils and brown rice, but though the D has stopped, the pain has not...

Doc, how ya doing now? Are you any better than this morning?

How are you feeling now? I think there is a blue spell going around. I woke up feeling down as well. Being on pred was very difficult for me as well. It caused me to be hyper and agitated. Tapering is hard. Just get all the support you need.
Hang in there.

Hey guys....Im better today than I was yesterday.
I got a great night sleep and got up early this morning with only one small cramp that lasted all of 3 seconds...and have been oaky so far...Had bacon, scrammbled eggs and and english muffin for breakfast with my partner. Havent had any issues and still havent went to the little boys room yet! LOL
I feel okay I really want to go to the gym but I have no energy at the end of the day...and it just takes too long in the mornings to get it together. Something will give on either end though...
