A Little Positive

It seems my stomach ache and the issues that went with it have finally subsided since I went off the meds. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me. I still have one complication that came of it all that’s not going away, which makes me wonder if it’s the MCTD causing it and not the meds. Or the meds caused it, but it’s not getting better because of the disease? It’s always a guessing game, that I don’t really want to play.

My stomach feeling better removes some of the concern of making the 10 hour trip on Monday. As long a day as it will be, I get to spend it with my Hubby who is in busy season at work so I don’t get to see much of him. Maybe in some ways, or lots of ways Monday will be a gift.

Fingers crossed I get the nice side of my Rheumie that day especially when I have to tell her I stopped taking Plaquenil too. It can’t be good when the meds have made me sicker then this wicked disease. If that’s the case why would I stay on them right?

I’m still hopeful to be able to get Humira and that it will help without the same terrible side effects. I’ve heard lots of good about it.

How have you been doing?

    1. Thank you. It will be Enbrel but same family. Doc is going to bat for me on it. There will be a lot of hoop jumping with the Ins. company. They expect all other options to be exhausted first. There’s one med apparently I haven’t tried, but since it will make me sick like all the others have, the doc is going to bat for me on that. Apparently I’ve lost 10 pounds because of the meds and I’m borderline underweight. I had no idea until the docs appointment. I thought I was puttting on weight. It’s not good because I eat a lot, and I’m losing weight. So we’re hoping the Ins. Co. won’t insist on me trying that last med.
