I am always tired since my flare I went into this Sept, I believe I am on my way out of it at this point, 1-3 bm's a day, almost fully formed and have barely had any blood (a couple times in the past few weeks).  I just have no motivation to do anything at all and am completely blah and I go to bed at 9 or 10 and sleep till 6:30 and on the weekends I sleep over 12 hours a night and just generally feel like it's too much effort to do anything.  I thought the pred would give me energy but maybe the azathioprine is cancelling it out or maybe the pred is making me feel the blah's???
anyone else out there feel this way or on pred and aza?

I'm not on pred (am on aza). I feel that way all the time. It takes alot of energy to do anything. Have you tried working out? I make myself go a few times a week and I think that helps some. Sorry I don't have any answers!
