Hey all, gonna pipe in my moaning  - if you haven't picked it up in my other posts tonight.

Been sick all week. Too much Motrin this past month has done me in. My liver is officially on the fritz again...everything from the rib cage to pelvic bone is screaming. The fatigue is insane. If I haven't already had mono twice in my life, I'd swear I have it now (or I was preggers, which I am definitely not - which made me think miscarriage except I was "right on time." - sorry guys!) Now the joints are crying because I haven't taken any meds all week. My gut is still not happy - I don't know if it's just the liver, I've got a bug, or something else is going on. The cramping is all over the place and when the fatigue hits, I can't blink w/o falling asleep.

Of course, maybe some of this is my fault as well, so I feel stupid for complaining. I could tell the Motrin was getting to the liver 2 weeks ago and I didn't take better precautions.  Well, at least last week I didn't when I had company down (staying with me) and not only did I over do it for the week, but my eating habits were horrible with eating out, eating quick (meaning not healthy), and I'm sure eating too big of meals most of the week. Knowing my liver was already acting up, I should have been much smarter, but went with convenience instead. I started to cut back on the Motrin as best I could, but the pms cramping and the joints were too much and I started taking it again since I didn't want to be down and out with visitors here.

Anyway, I know you all are dealing with much more, so I'm sorry for venting such stupid stuff. I guess it doesn't really belong in this forum anyway, but here's where I hang. Have a good weekend everyone ***

I had some breakfast, and my stomach is cramping and grumbling a bit, but so far not as bad as it was. My son is complaining HIS stomach hurts this morning which leads me to believe some of what I've had is a bug. I've been trying to eat light this week (when I can eat) and will wait it out.  The fact I get really tired after I eat concerns me about the diabetes issue we discussed in the other post - I know I've been borderline diabetic because of my liver and weight issues.

Speaking of, I wrote you a long reply in the other post.

No, I haven't gone to the doctor....I'm still waaaaay over due to see everyone. sad I think I'm going to change rhuemy's - the clinic I go to opened up an office right by my house (yeah!) I've hesitated changing because the doc I was seeing was just getting me started on Enbrel, but since I've held off taking it for now, I guess there is no reason not switch at this point. I think one of the doctor's near me is a woman as well - I wonder if that is a good thing?

I hate spending $25 bucks to be given a guess or a shoulder shrug followed by a "loose weight" when I need help in that subject because of all these issues. Though, I think some of it at this point is I'm scared to hear bad news as well. You know, the stupid way of thinking - "if I ignore it, maybe it will disappear" take on it all.  

The job is going okay. It's been easy so far, but they are going to start putting me on projects soon. sad   Oh well, the easy ride was nice while it lasted. tongue   The 24 hours seem just right, any more is too much, that is for sure. Sometimes I wonder if I'll survive 24! I know, that's pathetic - but considering I spent more time in bed than anything else these past 15 months,  I guess I should be happy I'm doing what I am so far. I just hope I can continue it as I've completely given up on SDI for now and hope my doctor doesn't pitch a fit when she finds out i went back to work.

Thanks for checking in with me. How are you feeling today? ***

CaMama,  sorry to hear the hard time you've been having lately.  It does s*&# when you get a virus on top of everything else, doesn't it?  I hope you're feeling  better soon.  If time allows you to change rheumies, then I say go for it.  If you've just started enbrel, I'm sure the next rheumy would continue the tx.  I hope you're feeling better soon.

I feel great today!  I finally did my enbrel injection, only 5 days late (because of the strep infection I had), and though I hurt right through last night, I woke up with less pain and stiffness this morning.  Yay enbrel!    Hopefully, the enbrel will eventually last through the week...

Yeah, ElCamino! How awesome is that to wake up to!?  I'm so glad to hear that and I hope it continues!

I have not started Enbrel, that's one reason why switching now might be a good idea.

Hope everyone had a good mother's day.

Hi ladies!
I know some are not feeling as well as they'ld like and I hope that changes real soon.
Me, I'm a big dummy, with far too few brain cells to know "feeling good" from "feeling bad".

The good news is I have not broken anything on my bike in almost 2 weeks, unless you count the sunglasses I crushed in a crash in Sedona on Friday. The bad news is ... I guess there is no bad news.

Stay tough ... Craig

Hey Craig, good to hear from you!
 
Depending on what type of sunglasses were crushed, could be bad news! tongue
 
You sound great!

scool  hey all,
ok, in a bad RA flare and despite getting over pneumonia...i think i'm kickin' butt.
last week i walked 2.49 miles. cool  
                              THIS WEEK???????????   ARE YOU READY???????????
 
                                                        yeah  3.31 Miles yeah
if there is anything i like most, it's reaching a goal.  i was aiming @ 2.5 miles but i have this little guru in my heart that says, "What's Your Breaking Point?...Go Beyond That!" 
given i could NOT MOVE the nite of nor the day after. LOL.
 
it is extremely encouraging to actually "see" improvement. i have numbers! i have not been able to stand that much in over a year and a half.
even though this isn't consistent, cannot walk everyday yet; at least i know that my leg strength has improved and that all this treatment is FINALLY doing something.
 
hope this is a little inspiring for anybody who's not doing too well. i'm starting from a crawl myself.
also must add, this walk i do once a week...that's the only thing i do on that day. hah!  tongue so in reality, my endurance does need a bit more work (heck, a lot more work). and i did limp home & the joint pain brought tears to my eyes...BUT I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
my honey scolded me @ my mileage  nono stating i shouldn't exceed no more than a 10% increase each week. whoops. tongue
crash on!  be well!

mad  i'm sour!  ok, no sleep.  severe joint pain.  and the worst part is my finger is deformed. confused yeah...what the he**?  awe man, and ya know what?
                                            IT's THE IMPORTANT FINGER TOO! sad
the middle one. mad i need that one. sad
 
let's see...on the sunny side of the street:  had a great weekend with my honey.
did anyone watch the Preakness?  wasn't that sad with Barabaro? sad i cried my heart out.  if the horse was just a regular newbie, they would have put it down right there...but the surgery went well.  so if he can stud at least; perhaps he'll have a good chance @ life.  thing is, he needs the leg to stand on.  so i pray he's OK. 
 
my boyfriend's horse ran yesterday! 1st time she ran against the big guns who've all won before.  she broke her maiden last month & took 1st...but yesterday she was leading ALL THE WAY...then died off to place 3rd.  not bad.  she did good. "Distant Bells" is her name.  Ducky i'll send ya a pic of her later on.
 
i hear ya, the storms are crazy.  sunny now. 
what is up with this finger?  confused confused   felt funny for like 3 days & now it's just bent to the right and HURTS!  didn't think that joint deformity could come on THAT quick. i mean, my hands hurt particularly worse this month, but this is weird.  guess a splint?  see rheummy dude on the 9th....i can give em' the finger! LOL. :-)
ciao!

Erin,  Sorry to hear that you're sick.  Hope you're feeling better soon, and can get some sleep.  That is so cool that your PCP mails you your bloodwork results.  My PCP doesn't even think of offering me a copy, much less mailing them to me.  It's like pulling teeth to even get him to share the results.  That's why I'm switching.

I'm feeling about the same I do every Thursday.  I hurt.  But it's towards the end of the week, and I do my enbrel injection on Saturdays now.  Usually by Friday, I have trouble walking in the morning.  I'm sure once the tramadol kicks in I feel a bit better today.  Since I started the enbrel, though, I do have a lot more energy and I no longer feel like I'm getting flu.  That feeling on top of joint pains is horrible.

This is my Friday, as I took of work tomorrow!  I have a nice 4 day weekend!  Happy Memorial Day everyone!  Any interesting plans?  WE don't have any yet, but I'm open for suggestions!

  cool elcamino!  in the fast lane....GO BABY GO! scool
yeah isn't that great! from all of the TNF injections i have been on, the one thing that always kicked in 1st was an increase in energy.  RA fatigue is WAAAAAY different than just regular fatigue.  so hard to explain but we all know it.  not a sleepy fatigue...it's an "I'm gonna fall flat on my face fatigue if I don't sit down soon." fatigue.
 
hey, could you do your Enbrel shot a day earlier?  if come thursday you start to feel this way, could you do it thursdays? i do hope you get some well needed rest & feel a little better.
 
  sad mmmm, i'm not too happy with my system either right now.  sad obstruction HURTS! nothing is passing yet. Oy!  eyes and the distention is getting worse.  this is typical, happenned before; but i really want it to go away NOW!  mad so many things need to be done before Sunday for the wedding.  and i'de hate to be on the bowl Sunday & miss everything!
 
be well "el"
ciao! :-)

I hope you make your wedding too Erin.   Now, are you the one getting married?!  If you're it, there's no way you're gonna spend it in the john.  I hope your tummy settles down soon, at least through the weekend.

Have a great memorial day!

Elcamino, it's Friday, are you ok?  Like Erin said, can you take your shot a day early?  What's the status of your insurance and getting you your additional 50 mg of Enbrel?  You make plans yet for this weekend?  I think me and my hubby are going to lay SOD tomorrow.. Do we know how to party or what?  tongue

CaMama how are you?  I feel like I haven't talked to you in FOREVER.  nono How's the babies?  I know they're not babies anymore, but their our kids, so I refer to them as babies... Are you still working?  How is that going?

Good moanin everyone!  Ducky--have great fun cooking.  I LOVE to cook party food...
 
I'm doing ok joint wise this morning.  It was quite a surprise.  Sore and stiff, but not quite as bad as usual.  I'm very very tired, though.  Girls got me up @ 6am.  Then my boss called and needed me to answer some questions about some stupid fire drill they're having at work today.  I'm getting ready to go swimming at the local YMCA with my husband.  He's been begging me forever, and now we have the opportunity to do so.  I've thought about taking the enbrel a day early, but I figure that would just move it back a day, so by next Thursday I'll still feel like (**&^%. 
 
Later, I have an appointment with an opthamologist for plaquenil screening.  Shouldn't be a big deal, but the tests will take 2 hours, and my eyes will be dilated so I may not see well right after the appointment.  I suppose I could always call my husband to pick me up if I can't see well enough to drive.  Doctor's office said many patients just sit there for a while and they're fine.
 
Tonight, I have band rehearsal- I play keyboard/piano for a contemporary worship band at my church.  I hope I get a nap at some point today!
 
Still don't have plans for memorial day yet!  We have to do something!!!!!!!  Perhaps we'll do a scavenger hunt at the local grocery store...
 
Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone!  My daugher is having a crisis over a princess book--gotta go.
