Well...I am usually quite the easy going guy! I have found lately that I have been a bit "on edge" I guess you could say. I know that the pred makes you moody, but I didn't think it was affecting me.
Yesterday, I went to rent a movie and I got a bag of chips. The girl told me that they were 2 for $5. I said that's ok, no thanks. She insisted and I said no thanks again. She still continued, explaining that they were any flavour etc etc. I normally shrug this stuff off, and I still did on the outside. But this is where I caught myself because all I could think is how I just wanted to tell her how annoying she was being right now and more... This is so NOT ME. Even my girlfriend says I usually don't even notice the people that annoy her. Come to think of it, I have been trying extra hard lately not to be short with her too.
It is very unusual. I am just not used to having every little thing bother me. Could it be the prednisone? Has anyone else had any moodiness with it?
On the positive note, I guess I've been using it as an excuse to exercise a bit more to "blow off steam" haha.
I'm not stressed at all by myself, just noticing that things I usually don't care about are driving me up the wall. Maybe I'm missing that beer I could just grab at will.
Just curious if I am alone. Can't wait to get off this pred. Hopefully I can taper off and not start to flare
