What a great morning!! I went and saw my rheumatologist today and, between the combination of medication and the gluten free diet, I’m doing well enough that I don’t have to see him again until March of next year! And I didn’t have to have any blood work or labs done today!! So excited! :)
Enbrel in the stomach hurts WAY less than in my thigh but I was too scared to try it this past year until Syd convinced me it’d be better :x
For the first four weeks that I injected enbrel, I injected into my thigh. And got reeeeaaaaally bad reactions. I almost never even bruise now that I inject into my stomach, let alone get reactions. And I agree, it doesn’t hurt as bad!

So very tired. I definitely didn’t sleep well at all last night and all I want to do is go back to sleep but, alas, I’m stuck at the dentist. I’ve been here for an hour already and I’ll be here for at least another hour more. We’re supposed to find out today if those injections straight into the jaw joints helped at all. Fingers crossed that they did because I don’t want to even think about what the next step will have to be if we can’t get my jaw to stabilize…

Can’t open pill bottles in the morning, bro.
I can open the bottles but damn, do you know how long it would take me to go through and open all nine bottles? That’s a lot of wasted time when I can simply go through and set myself up for the upcoming week. Added benefit is that it lets me see what I’m running low on at least a week in advance.
Oh chronic illness cat, you know me so well :/
I love how a person can look fine on the outside, great even, but be so broken on the inside. I’m sick of being broken but I don’t know how to fix it. And for once, I’m not talking about my RA. Just everything else…

And then cry the next day when the pain comes back :/
