Stepping down from the steroids = insanely craazy brain. Like, Hamster Wheel Brain on Crack Plus a Pot of Coffee.
That's all I got today. Here's the list of side effects. I've highlighted the ones that feel extra special to me (let's look past the weight gain and glucose issues, MK?) I know the alternative is not breathing. I know. But man. I've never felt the urge to punch something so badly.
Short-term effects have included sodium retention-related weight gain
and fluid accumulation, hyperglycemia and glucose intolerance,
hypokalemia, gastrointestinal upset and ulceration, reversible
depression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis,
and mood changes ranging from mild euphoria and insomnia
to nervousness, restlessness, mania, catatonia, depression,
delusions, hallucinations, and violent behavior.
