I had my third hospitalised flare in July. I was put on Budesonide and Methotrexate. I am coming off the steroids now. Since then I have been extremely irritable, short tempered, angry, anxious etc. I am not normally this way. Well, not normally this bad. Sometimes I feel like I just want to cry with anger/frustration.
Does anyone else feel like this? Perhaps it is the medication or is it just me?
I am a bit worried because my family has a big history of mental illness and I feel like I am getting more crazy as the days go by. I am in remission at the moment so things aren't too bad in the colon region but my brain is taking it pretty badly. My girlfriend is managing to put up with me at the moment but it must be awful as I am constantly on edge and losing my temper.
Would love to hear if other people feel the same way.
