Today my doc added yet another drug to my current anti-ear/sinus infection, anti-asthma cocktail: Prednisone! For my under-functioning lungs. Woo hoo!
I’m already so jittery and loopy my feet are barely touching the floor. When I start adding a steroid later today someone will probably have to tie me down. Just now at our weekly staff meeting I got several comments about my repeated silly and obnoxious interjections. Along the lines of “Can I have some of what you’re having?”
Oh, and the other great side effect of Prednisone, which my doc mentioned first thing: Crankiness. Oh, yeah – just what I need. Now on top of my normal crankiness PLUS my perimenopause crankiness, I get steroid crankiness. Watch out, world, I’m looking for a fight.
At some point, I’m going to have to Just Say No.
