I'm sorry to say that I can't add anything except my sympathy. Pred affects most of us this way. And since it also tends to make us irritable, it becomes a vicious cycle as the sleep deprivation makes us even more cranky. Try to lie down and rest even if you can't sleep. And if you can't lie down, then just get up and do something you find relaxing. Worrying about
not sleeping only makes it harder to sleep.
