No side effects?

The first time I was on prednisone I had classic side effects. However, the last time and this time I haven't. I started at 40mg and had some anxiety/insomnia and heartburn/bloating but now that I'm down to 30mg I don't really have any side effects- or at least not more than mild insomnia and heartburn/bloating. I know sometimes when people wean they get the side effects but last time I had none the entire time of weaning. I'm obviously grateful for this but wonder if it means something is wrong? The steroids seem to work fine... I just worry it says something about my body if I don't get the major side effects! Anyone else experience this?
