I'm not here to diagnose anyone, but I know personally, that while I'm usually very mellow, when I flare I get more emotional. Sometimes I get upset with my DH. Surprised? Or I get depressed. When I feel good, though, I'm happy and real even tempered. My meds don't change my moods but pain and feeling bad do. That's why being able to scream and rant here help me. I have the best hubby in the entire world but those few times when he hiccups and I totally overreact, I'd rather get it out here than scream at him, which I never do.
No one ever said that having a chronic disease was easy. It's important for me to try my best to look at the positive and to what I can to help my body heal.
What you're describing is something that you should probably address with your doctor. Prednisone can cause emotional highs and lows with some people and I'd talk to my rheumy about it. If they can't help you, then keep coming here and screaming. Works for me.
