Customer Question

I am anxious when not with other people. Can not sit and just read anymore, get anxious when friends leave me alone. Have lived on my own for over 30 years so do not understand what is happening. First had these feelings when I was on prednisone (50mg for 5 days) but have not been on prednisone for months now.
