OMG! I could not imagine taking 650 mg at one time !! I am working through the ups and downs right now. The dogs needed to go out at 3:30 am and now I cannot get back to sleep. Edgy and irritable today. The sleep part has been uneven, but I work my best around it. I only work 5 hrs a day, 3 days a week, so I have chances to sleep during the day sometimes.

I love the “its the prednisone” sign idea. Not only to help me, but to remind those around me that I may get testy and it isn’t their fault. Last night I was so wore out, tired and sore, my wife wanted to snuggle and comfort me, but I was too “touchy”. I think she forgave me and understood because we went through it before the last time, but I still feel bad about not being there for her emotionally when she wanted.

Hopefully a little typing can clear my mind enough to sleep.
