I am on steroids again to heal pneumonia. I absolutely hate them, but know i have to have them. Does anyone get 'deep depression' suicidal thought, nightmares, shakes,total confusion, no sleep and racing beat all the time. I have asked for help but its just a case of put up you need them, is there any cure to stop these side effects. Its bad enough feeling poorly having problems breathing etc but the Mental anguish is worse. I have COPD/ Emphysema.
