About a month ago, I started to "go mad". Everyone was baffled (me included) by my odd behaviour. I became paranoid. Thought my family were spying on me, stopping my phone messages. Preventing me from even going out. They were, but they were protecting me from myself. I really thought in my head they were, ganging up on me. Out to do me harm. What a horrible experience for use all.
Anyway, I was told I had steroid induced psychosis by the Rhuemy. He said I was taking far too much Pred (60) and I need to reduce it drastically (20). He said I was going to go through a withdrawal until my body got used to the new dose. Boy, that was some withdrawal!!!!! Felt like I was coming of drugs cold turkey! But, I DID IT in one week!
Since then, my "oddness" has totally vanished (thank God). My poor family have got "me" back and I can be myself instead of this psychotic monster I had become.
The "enlightening moment" is, I feel as though I have experienced the mind of a paranoid schizophrenic, if so, I have so much sympathy.
Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this?
