I get you with the Anger and lack of sleep caused by Preds. Just started a low dose of Preds one week ago today plus the Cort enemas I was already using. Things are calming down a little now both physically and emotionally but it can be really tough.
Mostly I try to limit my exposure to annoying, needy, demanding, and negative people and stressful situations as much as possible for now.
I stopped my Preds 15 months ago because of the issues I was having with anger, anxiety, sleep depravation etc etc etc while on them. I was over the top at the time and just couldn't deal with the Preds and other peoples feelings. Well its been 15 months and my UC got a lot worse and now my only option is Adding Preds to my list of meds while I wait to see if my insurance will cover Entyivo or I can have surgery.
So my advice to you is hang on and do what you have to do to take care of You for now. Its called "Self Care" and it's ok to put yourself first instead of others for once. You and your health is what really matters now.
Hang in there.
