Hi All!!!! Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year!!!! I am sorry I haven't written in awile. I have been seeing a rheumatologist. I just picked up my prescription for Embrel. I start taking it on Tuesday. I am still on Methotrexate, steriods,folic acid and fosamax. The doctor increased my Methotrexate and steriod intake. I am showing 3 bone erosions in my wrist and 3 in my hand. I had to leave my job as a security guard but I am still holding on to hope. I am hoping that once I start taking the Embrel things will start getting better. I am hoping that all of you have been doing well and I am wishing all of you a very happy holiday.
My name is Andrea and I am 39 years old. I have 3 children. Their ages are 20,17 and 14. I was diognosed with RA last year and i am currently on Methotrexate and Folic Acid. I am very close to my children and I love life. Sometimes I wish that I was a diiferent person but then I look at how fortunate I am to have a wonderful family who supports me and my condition. Hopefully one day they will find a cure, but until they do all of you are in my prayers!!!!

Good luck and Happy New Year to you too Andrea! Have you started the Enbrel? How is it going?

Hi Andrea....I am so sorry about your news. I am not on Enbrel yet but may start in February. I understand that it can stop the bone erosions. Have you started it yet and if so how do you feel? I am glad you have a good support system with your kids.
