MedicFilter: I'm on Prednisone
for 5 days for the second time of my life, and just like the first time, it's working as intended to clear up my severe congestion, but it's also making me king of the freaking world.
Why is this?

Sure, I feel better because I can actually breathe normally after only being on this stuff for 8 hours, but there's more going on here: There's something in my mind saying "Stay on task, you feel great, stay on task, perhaps it's time to do something creative, focus in, get the work done, maybe I should clean that mess over there."
When I was last on this stuff, I started a blog based from the point of view of my character in World of Warcraft. I couldn't stop writing, and for the past few months I've looked back repeatedly on that time in complete amazement. Now, I've just had a very full day of working, shovelling the driveway (for the 3rd day in a row -- lotsa snow here), taking my son to Kung Fu class, picking up dinner, and playing with my kids -- and I've still got enough energy to sit down and ask this question.
The best part about this? When I need to sleep, I sleep the sleep of the gods. I can wake up without drowsiness, and I have no difficulty making the transition from wakefulness back to slumber.
I'd be worried if I weren't so completely fired up about this. Can someone tell me what else is going on in my system to cause this? It's making me feel good even when I don't want to.
