Prednizone sucks!!!! My moods well rages...are off the charts.  mad  I am on a taper of 5 mg every 5 days. I have been on Prednizone since Feburary 22nd, 40 mg tapering every 5 days till off. This round did not help much at all. So I was put back on at 30 mg for 2 weeks then 20 mg for 12 days then 15 mg for 5 days now I am at 10 mg.
I am on a roller coaster!!! For 2-3 days after tapering I am a mess!!! Then I feel better only to taper once again.
To top that off, My DH know how to push my buttons!!!!!!!!! Tuesday was really bad. It's like I tell him to leave it (me) be and he just keeps on at me. Such a bully. I get so shaky and just want to kill him (or me)....really...not that I would but I sure want to! Now yesterday he asks..."why is your face so swollen and red????" Gosh it's been that way for a few weeks now?!? sad Glad you noticed and pointed that out to me??!!!!!
I want off this evil drug and NOW! I know I can't do that but...I am supposed taper again on Saturday I am going to taper by 2.5 mg. for a few days then 2.5mg till I am done. I hope this will help.
On the up side my poo is better!! No blood, mucus, and only 1-2 bm a day!!
Sorry so long of a vent. Its that or kill hubby. eyes

Wow, I'm sorry you're having such a tough time! Does your hubby think he's teasing you or is he intentionally being mean? Either way, his behavior is abusive and you don't deserve it. Have you given him information about your condition so he can understand what you're going through? Sometimes that helps, or even ask him to accompany you on a GI visit so the doctor can explain to him.

I hope you're feeling better and being treated better soon.

Hubby knows and is just being mean, he went with me for colonoscopy and talked to dr. Also I explained how prednizone works...and for the most part he has been very lucky, my moods/rage has just started. Sometimes he can be an as*hole. I told him that and he said I was one too. I told him I was in withdrawl what was his excuse??? LOL
Most the time he is very caring. It is hard for me to say anything as I grew up with a verbal abusive stepmom, 2 stepdads who was physically abusive toward my mom. I don't like confrontation.
You would think it would be easy and I would have learned to stand up for myself...and I am, at the ripe young age of 55.
I am getting there.

Sorry. Prednisone is the worst. I used to punch pillows or scream into pillows while on it to try to let some of the rage out. Your dh is just making it harder on you and that's just wrong. Good luck with your taper.
