My journal of my battle with Crohns disease. I have had Crohn's diagnosed since September 2007. In that time I've been through two surgeries, two colonoscopies, and tons of good and bad times. I want to share my experiences with this disorder and hope to hear some feedback from time to time.

Wide Awake and Staring At the Wall

Wednesday, February 10, 2010
Hey fellow crohnies. It's 1:00 am right now and I want to be sleep, but I can't fall asleep. Do you all find yourselves in the same situation? This always happens to me when I take Prednisone.

I also want to thank the readers of my blog. Whenever I see that I've had visitors, it make me want to write and help others. Keep on reading and let me know your stories.

it's part of what's called "steroid psychosis"... a kind of hypomania that gives you spirts of energy at all the wrong times. i complain about it in my blog so frequently that i've given it an acronym: p.m. (for prednisone mania).

enjoy... :)

I've just found your blog - it's really great! I am on prednisone now, too, and am sleeping only about 4 hours a night. I eventually crash and sleep a full night, but that usually only happens about once a week! Good luck with your lack of sleep - I'll be thinking of you!
