My first month of pred was horrible, I cried all the time (also had a bad flare) and was on 60mg a day, I felt like I was crawling out of my own skin I couldn't stand myself or anyone else. The second month to 4.5 mos (now) I am on 60/40 alt days. I don't know why but the second month I did feel better able to cope with it. Now I have the blah's and all the wonderful pred side effects. There is a book called coping with prednisone and I highly recommend it, it's like $13 and really helped me feel not alone and help deal w/the pred.
HTH! (sometimes I cruise the Chrons board)
