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!!!!
