I think the air is too dry for your bromeliad. Instead of misting it, try setting it on a tray filled with pebbles and then keeping a half inch of water in the tray. As the water evaporates it will increase the humidity around your bromeliad and that should help make it happier. Best wishes with your bromeliad!
