    Should be?

    Your title makes it sound like they already are.

    Does this mean they're finally doing something you approve of?

    I plead guilty to typing to fast to get back to the Celts drubbing. I will correct that.


    Any comment on the bipartisan concern about the leaky WH?

    Just raggin' on ya.....I'm on the downside of a 7day prednisone burst and if you've ever been on prednisone, you'll understand.


    Hey, at this point it's good to see them agreeing on anything.

    Some people get anxiety, mania and some psychosis from it, they feel like they are going nuts. My wife's mother just went through this. I have taken it for years due to sever asthma in the spring and only got the insomnia from it. I was very shocked to learn of this side effect as I did not know it had mind altering side effects in some.

    It can be an extremely volatile medication. Usually a "burst" doesn't have the same side effects but it's certainly not unheard of. I've taken it before with nothing more than Icy's insomnia but this time I'm a freaking basket case emotionally and mentally. Physically, my head hurts constantly, I can't sleep, I'm starving all the time but too nauseous to eat anything substanstial and I can't concentrate longer than 60 seconds. I'm 4 days down, 3 days to go. Hopefully, as the dosage continues to decrease, life gets better.

    When my youngest son was around 6 he was on high dose steriods for a period of years - at one point he tried to throw himself out of a window because he "didn't want to live anymore." While it's a life saving drug in many cases it becomes a real quandary when you are steriod dependant and suffer a psychotic episode.....it's not a drug you can just quit taking.

    to put it nicely, it can be called a 'mood-enhancer' in that whether you are happy or angry, it makes you more so.

    but what I remember most is my ears burning and feeling like they have needles in them
