Gee Whiz, I've been AWOL again. I'm baaaaack.
Been working and sleeping and working....... and thinking way too much. Actually, I'm doing very well. Hubby and I are working things out and having a good time together. We went to the lake this weekend and helped with some chores at my two brothers' cabins and spent the weekend. We had a great time. Beautiful weather, then it snowed today. What the ....!
I tried to catch up on posts. Hope everyone's doing well.
Catcha later, Boo
Yally, I want you to cook for me, sounds like you're making all my favorites...cept maybe the moroccan..can't say I've ever tried that. I'mso glad you get to go back on your meds!!! Praying you feel better really, really soon.
Think our house is finally somewhat healthy...fingers crossed that there aren't any leftover little flu buggies hanging around.
Got to watch our son conduct his first ever band concert with his students last week. It was so awesome to see him up there, he was loving every minute of it. Brought back so many memories of when I used to go and watch him and his brother. Doesn't seem possible that he should be old enough to be the one doing the teaching (or that I should be old enough to have a son teaching lol). Of course, I am completely biased, but the kids sounded great, and I cried like a baby!
Was reading some of the back posts...wish I knew some Spanish! Took a couple of years of French way, way back in high school, wish I remembered more of it, Raven..Loved it at the time.
Glad to hear some of you are starting to improve! YEAH!
I'm not sure, I think I'm going the other direction. BOO HISS! I'm SO tired these days and achy. I'm ready for my contract to end....yet.....we need the income so badly, things are falling apart on us left and right.
Meant to ask you a question if you don't mind....how long after your bout with the shingles did it take for the pain to surface? or did it just never leave? A friend of mine is going through a really bad, very painful bout of shingles right now...she is really having a rough one. She's just starting to scab now, but is so afraid of the kind of pain that you'v experienced. Just don't know what to tell her.
Had a busy weekend with basketball and started to feel sick on Saturday evening. Went to the ER tonight and guess what. I have pneumonia again!!!! This is the second time since the beginning of the year.
Does anyone else find they are sicker with the RA meds. I was hoping year 2 with this disease would get better, but I'm not off to a very good start. The minute I feel better and start doing more with my family I get kicked down with something else.
Any thoughts or ideas/suggestions?
Yes, I find I got sicker a lot more. Lately, it hasn't been more often, just more severe and prolonged when I do get sick.
How long have you been on methotrexate? I found I had a lot of respiatory problems when I was on that stuff.
Hang in there Yalinda - spring's-a-comin! I'm sure of it!
Its 0538 EST and no sign of spring here. Some strom from the US blew up here. We have freezing rain, snow then more freezing rain and snow.
Enough already, I want Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Liked the pic, huh Yally? LOL..just couldn't help myself..heehee. Seriously, know you are enjoying time with your girls,but inside-out pjs? Never heard of that when I lived in the north.
Raven...so so sorry you're sick..pneumonia is some bad stuff. Seemed I went from one sinus infection to the next for the past year. Since I've been off the mtx, still had one, but have also had flu, colds, etc. The meds are supposed to supress our immune systems, so maybe that does us in. Or, does just having RA make us more prone to being sick beause our immune systems are already messed up? Seems we can't win either way..we need the meds..but the meds do all this other stuff to us, too. Gets pretty frustrating at times.
Raven, I think it was you who asked if we are sicker on the meds? I'm not sure if it is the meds but it could be or maybe like Jody said just the RA in general since this year I am just plain sicker than last year! So it could be the MTX or it could be the RA it is so hard to tell anymore One cold seems to turn into another one before I know it! Friday is Ebrel day if I can make it without getting sick.
Jody I'm glad you are on the mend and up and around with the kiddo's..are you back on your meds or taking a break? Sorry I can't remember? Anyway I'm happy to see you posting again
Today it seems to be a frozen tundra here but there is some sunshine....I'm waiting for the 50 degree's on Friday. However, I am not looking forward to Daylight Savings..I really like that extra hour of sleep and hate to see it go!
Camama...what kind of contract to you have? what type of work?
Happy Hump Day everyone
