THANK you for your sweet note on my blog. I have been feeling really down lately - and yes, I've been under a lot of stress ... surgery is a HUGE stress on the body & mind.
I am starting Humira & methotrexate again this week - I'm getting my Humira through the Prescription Assistance Program. I'm so thankful for those programs. I haven't worked in 2 years because of my arthritis & lupus & I am still battling for disability coverage. What a horrible frustration that has been!
I don't take oral iron, my body doesn't absorb it at all. When my iron gets too low I get infusions of iron at the hospital. I also have a lot of trouble with Vit D and potassium unfortunately. The Vit D isn't so bad, just a very cheap presription fix. Potassium, though, they infuse that, too & boy does it HURT going through the IV!
I'm so glad you're having such great success w/the Enbrel. I've heard wonderful things about it.
And I AM soooo looking forward to getting my mobility again. It's been getting worse & worse over the past 3 yrs & now with a new knee & the RA drugs ... things can only get better, right!? Thank you again for reaching out ... your kindness really helped make my day! 2854 days ago
