What I Wish My Family Knew About Prednisone Side Effects

Family and Prednisone Side Effects

Struggling with prednisone side effects!

In front of the sweet-smelling honeysuckle vines, my children just sang a song for Mother’s Day. 

We recorded a video of their little voices to send to their grandmothers.​

It was one of those rare, “Gee I sure love these kids!” moments.

​​​​But while I was on this drug, those moments seemed more rare. 

Not that my kids were any different.

But because I was.

Prednisone Changed Me as a Mommy

Prednisone messes with our stress response. I struggled to keep my cool when the prednisone demon whispered in my ear.

And my children didn’t understand why mommy was suddenly Mean Mommy.

So many other families have struggled with prednisone disrupting their family peace and unity.

I don’t want any other families to suffer because of this drug. 

The first step is understanding.​​​​

That’s why I created this video.

Watch now!

Taking this drug can be a lonely journey, difficult to explain to family members since it causes so many side effects.

Several people have approached me, asking me to help save their family relationships that were being harmed by the side effects like mood swings. They wanted me to share this message with their family so that they could understand that this drug makes us change. …To help them know that “it’s not me, it’s the drug!”

So I asked thousands of people on prednisone what they wish their family understood, then I analyzed it and compiled it into this video.

Share this video with your family members so that they can understand what you are going through and help you all cope.

Discover what prednisone side effects to expect to affect your family relationships.

Hear the words of actual prednisone patients; what they wish their family members understood.

When someone messages me to tell me that my videos helped patch up their fraying family relationship, I know that this message needs to be shared.

It makes me smile, and sometimes shed happy tears, every time.

Watch With Your Family

Thousands of people have already watched this on Facebook, and it’s been shared dozens of times with friends and family of prednisone patients.

Hopefully, that will continue to preserve more families from suffering relationship damage from side effects.

Watch this and share it with your family–I want your family relationships shielded from the harm of prednisone, too.
