I love scuba diving- I don't yet love being in a bathing suit with other divers on the boat.





Agreed!



I have 17 pics in my gallery

Things don't change; we do.

Hi there! My name is Amy and I live in the San Francisco bay area. I'm starting over again and determined to make this the final time I will need to lose a substantial amount of weight. I lost my dad recently (Oct 2013) and it really woke me up to the importance of good health. It will be a long road with its up and downs, but if there is anything that SP has taught me, it's to never give up!

We can do this!

I know, right? I told my dentist geez, I'm trying to be good and have popcorn instead of dessert, and he was totally sympathetic but said those kernels can just be impossible to get at no matter how much you floss. Harumph. As for the bitstrips, it took me like five minutes to set it up on my phone, you should do it! It's a riot.

Enbrel is a once-a-week injection (in your upper leg), unfortunately. I don't love that, but it has WAY less side effects than what I used to be on - methotrexate, which is actually a chemo drug. I would feel like crap for a good day or so after taking that (once a week). So the injection is worth it for me. Haven't ever done phototherapy?

Hey, I didn't know you have psoriasis = I do too! Weird how much we have in common. The Enbrel I take for my rheumatoid arthritis (actually it could be psoriatic, they've never figured it out) takes care of the psoriasis too. Wicked expensive, but thankfully my insurance covers it.
