Evening all,
Not the best of weekends, can't believe I'm saying this, but I wish it was Monday...spent last night at the ER. My 8 year-old niece broke her arm at camp, so went to sit with my sis, fetch coffee, etc, while the docs took care of things. Ran errands this morning and then locked myself into the kitchen the rest of the day and most of tonight . Tomorrow have to go to memorial service for a 21 year-old friend of one of our boys. Just don't want to do this, but know I have to, hits too close to home, you know? The boy died in a bicycle accident while away at college...can't even begin to comprehend the mom's pain. Very special lady, single mom, with another son, age 16 as well. How on this earth does a parent get through something like this? My heart is breaking and it's not my son, this is really, really tough. So, spent the day baking cookies, I always seem to end up in the kitchen when things like this hit, don't know why. Now the freezer is full of cookies, but I can't say I feel any better. Hubby was a real doll and helped me the whole time, guess he knows it's my kind of therapy.
Hope things are better with all of you....by the way. Bear, what is Poet's Day?
Hugs all around,
Jody

So this is a moaning thread. I am having a hard time dealing with everything. Got my Rituxan infusion on Friday and did pretty well. The day of wasn't great but it wasn't so bad either. Had night sweats, broken sleep, tinkling and numbness in my lower arms and legs but it wasn't too bad. Most tired. The whopping dose of meds you get before the infusion was the worst of it. Depomedrol IV 100mg, 50mg of benedryl and 1000 mg of tylenol 30 minutes before the infusion. At least the joints were comfortable for several hours. Currently on my regular regimen of 20mg Arava, 25mg mtx, folic acid, blah blah blah. Also on keflex 2000mg daily for an abscess that I have recently formed on my back about the size of a half dollar. It hurts like hell too. Going wednesday to have something done about that. Then the blood work thing about positive antiphospholipid stuff and blood clots. YIKES. It is all a lot to take in. So, I am a bit stressed out...

Anyone got any words of wisdom?

Only "hang in there!" and remember stress does not help a situation!  Good luck on Wed. let us knwo how everything goes.

When I was on remicade - i had to take 25 mg of bendryl otherwise I dragged for days on 50mg ....if I had a steriod infusion ahead of time too - man, I was a mess for days!

OK, so I don't have a medical degree and I'm not a nurse but I've gone back on my Lodine (Etodolac).  Celebrex is supposed to be easy on the tummy but it's not easy on mine.  And it doesn't even touch the pain and swelling.  I'll call the rheumy today and tell them.  I have almost been immobile all weekend.  Went on a crying jag yesterday that wouldn't stop.  I see folks moving on, having fun, living their lives.........and leaving me at home.  Oh Poor Boo.  Here I am on my pity pot again.  My throne.  It's just that Nothing will be done this week about trying to sell the business and I'll be expected to suit up and show up again come Monday morning and kill myself in the process.  Me thinks my feet will turn into nubs.  I'm just working up the courage to tell him once and for all that I'm done.  Get a new partner or something.  Probably shouldn't do that as he's already "replaced" me once before.  Sorry to open that can of worms but it's always in the back of my mind.  When I was dx'd and put on disability he went nuts, for three years, with my best friend.  Why am I still here?  I guess to keep driving him crazy.  Ha!  We all know how it is on marriage and relationships with this disease.  He's got a couple of maladies of his own to deal with(which do not belong on this forum) and the stress is too much for us at times.  All that on top of running a business together....well you get the picture. 

I'm going to do my "stuff" today, go into the city for a couple of appointments, maybe some shopping, just pace myself, since I can't walk very far.  I'm just going to have a good day. 

Just have to get on here and rant so I don't explode.  Thanks!  Boo

Egads, I'm sorry everyone is having such a hard time of it of late!  Although my joint symptoms are fairly well controlled now, I still remember when I ached all of the time.  It was unrelenting, and at times I was seriously down about it.  I can truly empathize with you guys.  Just so you know, I tried vioxx (similar to celebrex) and it did nothing for me either except cause GI problems; it's not supposed to cause GI issues either.  But then if you have a sensitive GI tract, like myself, everything tends to upset my system.

Fortunately, at this point, I have not had to have an infusion.  The enbrel worked for me, when I was taking it, and mtx is working for me alone right now.  Boo, try not to let it get you down when it feels like everyone else is leaving you; maybe you can find activities that you can do, and invite your friends/family to join you for a change.

That's all for now.  I hope everyone has a better week this time around.

Good morning everybody...

Erin...There has got to be something for your level of pain? I just can't imagine all that your taking and still hurting!

Bloo..I'm happy to hear that your Rituxin went well and that you seem comfortable with taking it, I hope it helps you.

Jody...I know you feel so much sadness for your friend, and the fact that she must still finish raising her 16 year old, life will have to go on for her so she can do that...She will need a great deal of support to get through it.

Bear..I hope all is well with you and your family.

Yalinda...How is your party planning coming along? have you gotten any help with it?

Oh Boo :( It's okay, we all have pity parties, it comes with the territory doesn't it? We are all here for you and to listen when you need us to. I think you asked about the Leucovorin Calcium? You probably have had it! Its the medication you take to help counteract the fatigue from the MTX..or to help reduce the MTX toxicity. When I went for my last appointment, I told my doctor the fatigue was more than I could take, and he gave me that. When I looked it up it seems to go with MTX. Like I said there are pills for just about everything! The leucovorin seem to help because today I was able to get out of bed and that is always a good thing. Since Saturday I was so desperate, I found a couple of left over prednisones and ended up taking those for a pick me up. I still hurt but it is tolerable I guess. It is hard to keep up with everyone..we pretty much ran around the entire weekend and spent a great deal of time in the car, which is really hard. My family forgets that I can't keep up with them, but usually I just stay quiet anymore. I know its hard! But like El said, maybe try to find something you would like to do and have some friends over, maybe a movie night?

Well a busy day ahead with a doctor appointment, grocery shopping, and a birthday party tonight, with lots of driving in between. Have a great day everyone!

Hello everybody and greetings from a very downcast bear - downcast cos he's reading about so much pain and anguish through the threads. Have already had words for erin elsewhere but my heart goes out to Boo in particular because, once again, I read about men being 'men' again and does me no favours. But they're just boys growing into men and then growing back into boys again. Men always seem to think that the only thing wrong wth playing away is getting caught but what the hell, it don't mean nothing do it? Like smeg it does. there's a little cavity up men's arses where they keep their conscience when it comes to playing dip your wick - sorry about the crudity. I know if I ever wandered I would not only be homeless but singing soprano in the choir and the blood wll be on the garden shears. It must be even harder for youBoo because of the business connection and you've been left to sort that out alone a well. Maybe one of the reasons men don't stick arond the threads is because the weight of collective guilt gets too much to bear or that maybe they too don't have consciences, I don't know, any thoughts out there. I'm pleasantly surprised that I don't become the butt of angst from some of you and in one way I wouldn't blame you if you did. This is a venting thread after all. Mustgo to ebd now, up early tomorrow.
 
may your pain be of another woorld.

{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS EVERYBODY}}}}}}}}}}}}}} hang in there guys...even i'm still saying in my head, "this too shall pass" and it will.
 
Boo! mmm yeah, Celebrex is crap!  i'm thinking of manufacturing my own! SUGAR PILLS! cuz' that's what they are! LOL.
i'm sure they do work for certain arthritis pain, but one's LUCKY if Celebrex helps bad RA joint pain.
 
Theresa, hang in there toots!  you're routine w/ the pre-meds is similar to mine, but...it is important, a lot can be avoided by pre-medicating.
my doc has me continue my "pre meds" POST INFUSION for 4 days! (b/c of infusion delayed reactions, and the meds help avoid the reaction).
 
:-)   :-) :-) :-) :-) here's a bunch of smiles for those who need em'. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) peace/love

cool  I think my head is on a little straighter this morning.  Pity party has broken up and I'm going to Podiatrist (surgeon) today.  Another trip into the city and I'm looking forward to it.  I can really FEEL concern and care coming through the net!  This is awesome!  Just a lot of strange crap going on around here that's triggering the depression and rage from a few years ago.  I'm on top of it now.  Hey, I'm still me and I'm still here.

Bear, you are a gem!  There are few of your type running around this planet who aren't afraid to be human and sensitive.  But, you're special.

Erin, let's go into the biz together.  I've gone back on the Etodolac and I'm doing better.  I'm remembering having taken Celebrex once before.  Now I'm remembering why I quit it.  Gotta call the rheumy's office back and tell them so I'll be able to refill it later.  Sometimes I don't think something's working until I stop it.  Ugh!

Be it the arthritis or be it the whirlwind of stuff going on......I'm having a bit of a problem keeping my mouth shut.  Hahahaha!  I had a "discussion" with a receptionist yesterday who clearly doesn't love her job.  I listened to her talk down to me for a few moments and quickly informed her that just because I was on Medicare, I was in no way, shape or form going to let this attitude slide, that I am a professional woman who doesn't allow this kind of behavior in my place of business, and that the doctor will be informed of this experience.  I too, have been in the medical field and this is not the way to speak to people who are in physical and emotional pain.  She was silent for a moment and then apologized.  I'm still laughing about that.

The other "meltdown" was at Wal-mart.  This guy parks his cart at the front of my car instead of the place where you put them which was two steps away.  I said, "Hey, that's ok.  I can't walk but I'll put this away for you and I think you scratched my car, I've got your liscense number and you'll be hearing from my lawyer". 

Boo better calm it down!  Wal-mart parking lot is NOT the place to let off steam.  Maybe I'm developing a resentment for able-bodied persons.  skull Wooohoooo!  Look out world, here I come.

Got to get ready for doc appt.  Pray for me as I drive my Beetle Bug around the city and look for unsuspecting victims.  Ha!

Good moanin' all!  I hope everyone is doing well today.  I'm feeling good.  Had a good appointment with my rheumy yesterday.  He seemed pleased that the mtx is doing what it should be; offered to increase it even more--I quickly said no way.  I also talked to him about the erosive gastritis and erosive esophagitis.  He said that certainly is something that needs to be taken care of, as none of the meds I'm on, including the tb meds, can cause erosions.  It must be acid, and given that I've been taking a PPI for the past 5 years, it must be break through acid.  I have a HIDA scan scheduled for Friday morning to check my gall bladder.  Again, if that's normal, GI will switch up my PPI to see if that helps my symptoms.

Boo! naw...one hasn't lived until she's popped-the-top at a WALMART!  go get em' Boo! lol.
 
i tell ya'...this Fentanyl Patch is a dummy sticker too.  seriously, it's a peice of tape with glue on it. eyes that or it's just way too low of a dose. i DO get to put a new on on today...so perhaps the serum levels are higher; Jay-Z [that's my GI dude] did say that the more you use the patch {every time ya put a new one on} it is more effective. (i love my JZ...thank God for him, i'd have gone loony-tune by now if not for him).
so again...more pred, more tylenol, ice packs, Voltaren, 12 LidoDerm patches {yes 12... nono but no, haven't OD'd on lidoderm yet, so far}, PLUS this stinkin' Duragesic crap???????
 
time to bust out the Henessy or some Jack i guess? (ewwww) it's 5 o'clock somewhere right?
 
El this is BEAUTIFUL that you're getting some good benefits from MTX, thank God...at least we know that it works!!!!!  hearing you tell this makes me feel sooooo much better, it really does.  i am very glad to hear it.
do you have a haital hernia by chance?
 
I HAVE A FINANCIAL ADVISOR!!!!! yeah in short...my whole financial problems that i'm having???? i need not worry...EVERYTHING IS IN MY FAVOR! yeah so i am very pleased to have that burden off of my shoulders.
i don't have to file bankruptcy if i don't want to...i can wait till decembers SSDI trial to see what happens.
i can legally stop paying every debt in CC's i owe until a settlement is reached!
whew!
 
so now i'm wiped out, time for bed.  wish me luck!
peace/love

:-)  YallyI wrote to you 3 weeks ago & I mentioned LidoDerm!  Wow I hope they help your shoulder some. :-) So glad your doc RX'd them for you.
I use em' on my knees.  (says only UP TO THREE per day but I cheat & often) so 3 patches go on EACH knee, nono erin's bad i know. nono
After about an hour the area does get "numb"...I really hope that your shoulder after an hour or so of the patches being on feels "non-existent".
 
We do punch-buggies too, tee hee hee.
 
eyes  Yeah, me too...even though I don't have any significant finances, lol...I am relieved that I have everything planned out & in front of me for every scenario that can come up between now & the SSDI trial.
I just told Joe that I had money counseling today and he goes, "So this financial advisor told you what to do with the money YOU DON'T HAVE?"... tongue
 
YES!
 
Why yes she did!
Feels good to know that I can pretty much tell the "tele-harrassers" to go ****Off! hee hee hee.
 
sad  Mmmmm...41street in Manhattan just blew up! sad I can see it from my window, but it's a steam pipe that burst...not an attack as per Eyewitness News says.  An underground thing.  Looks scary! Lots of helicopters all over.
 
Oh...Yally, on 4th of July I met a fella, Charlie,who just had surgery on???? ADHESIVE CAPSULITIS!!!!!!!!!!  If I remember correct he was just 4 weeks post-op & HE FELT GREAT!  He told me he was in hell for about 3 years before he took any action.  He woulda' done the surgery the day he found out about it if he knew better!  So I thought I'd share that positive story...there's an end to this down the line; even if it is surgical, hang in there girl. :-) {{{{{{{{{{hugs
[that was a 1 arm hug]
 
redface  No sleep yet redface
Still can't say if this Duragesic is working, eyes oy.
Had to take 12mg Dilaudid still...wasn't expecting the joint pain to get to a 8 or 9 scale level 24 hours after having this patch on.
Here's to a better tomorrow for all of us, i think today sucked big time for most peeps.

El, I'm so glad to hear you're doing ok and feeling good!  Hope you get that other stuff taken care of.  Erin, I thought that Fent stuff was pretty strong.  Bless your heart, Sweetie. 

We do Slug Bug here.  I see kids hit each other all over town when I drive by or pull up next to them.  My son-in-law makes fun of my car, says he's waiting for all the clowns to start piling out whe I pull up in front of their house. 

Folks, I think this plantar fascitis is going to be the end of me.  I purchased yet another pair of shoes today, New Balance, which my doc advised me to do.  The salesman spent a lot of time on me and knew what he was doing.  I did a little shopping in them while waiting for another appointment and thought I'd die.  Maybe it's going to take some time to get used to this new orthotic and I know there is inflammation of Biblical proportions.  Had to get home and on the ice pack straight away.  I'm getting really discouraged and have to go back to work Monday.  I had another break down yesterday when I got home from the injection in my heel.  Told hubby I wasn't going to kill myself anymore.  This is it.  Hire more people or something.  I need my feet! 

Jay Z........Erin, sounds like a rap singer.  Ha!

yep erin that is why i asked for them! sry i didnt give u credit for the asking but u put the bug in my ear and i asked for them! the only problem is ......... i dint get a script! when i asked for them he gave me 4 patches to try at home only and said he didnt know if my insurance would cover them???????? so what i have done is cut them in half as they are huge and placed it directly on the shoulder joint top crown and it seems to be helping....... i am to wear it 12 hours but yeaterday i forgot and wore it all day like maybe 15 hours? crazy but i only had one screeching pain yesterday so i do think it haelped. now i have to get my hands on some rx's for them! of course last night both shoulders were screaming at me and stiff! ugh this was the worst my right had ever been at night. but the good thing is i am so dang tired that i sleep till i am stiff and stuck in pain - move the stiff body and fall right back to sleep! :)

boo~oh my plantar fascitis is a bugger lately again too!  been wearing crapy summer shoes and feeling it.
i thought Jay Z was a rapper too?!

duck how u doing?

el good luck tomorrow with scans and keep us posted.

Moanin..

Boo..Funny about your slug bug, my little girl loves to play that game and she also wants a bug when she gets her first car..a green one to be exact :) Only when she plays the game for points, she somehow ends up with way more points..I think she cheats? :) The shopping carts reminded me of a message board I used to post on, there was this long post (over 200 posts) of moms arguing back and forth of who was worse leaving children in cars to put carts back, or just leaving them in the lots...it was just ridiculous :) Your post made me smile.

El...I am glad you are still doing well on your MTX!

Yalinda...It's nice that your doctor is considering your insurance/finances but it should also be up to you? I'm glad they work and I hope that you get more of them.

Erin...about the finances...that is a relief!! Now you just need to get your pain under control, maybe get a stronger dose? I read your other post about the evil prednisone. I took a lot of it growing up in my childhood with my asthma, who would have thought it was so versatile? With the arthritis it helps so much but I am trying hard not to get my prescription refilled for this weekend (long car ride) I too feel like some kind of junkie!

Jody? How are you?

I have been under a lot of stress this week and not much sleep so I don't think the MTX is working as well as it should be, my hands are hurting and I have that burning in the hips again. We are supposed to drive down to my inlaws on Friday, so I am thinking about taking some Prednisone with me for the trip. I was hoping the Leucovorin was going to be some kind of magic energy pill but perhaps it is not since I didn't get much sleep this week..I still feel as if I am wading through quicksand all of the time, or in some kind of fog. I was taking two plaquenils but it seems they cause some kind of burning sensation so I have cut back to one per day, maybe they don't mix well with the MTX after all..

Someone asked about the party? It was just a friends 40th birthday party, we first met them when we moved here to Colorado and even after we moved out of town we have still kept in touch.

Have a great day everyone:)

Yally, you're right....no more cutsie summer sandals.  And I'm a shoe nut.  Made a second outing today in my "transformer shoes".  I remind myself of one of my grandson's transformer toys.  These shoes are huge!  But they're feeling better.  I went to see my mother-in-law in her new place at the nursing home.  Very nice place.  She seems comfortable and happy.  She asked me five times in 30 minutes how my kids are doing.  Didn't remember her son (my husband) being there this morning.  But that's ok.  I'll stand on my head for her to be happy. 

Having a better day so far.  Erin, watch out for exploding sidewalks!

OOOhhh Er-in, so you got yourself a fancy fi-nan-cial advisor eh? Nice going girl but where does that leave me eh? I've rung around just about every charity on the block scroungng collecting tins and had all the labels printed with 'give a quarter for Erin' on them. I''d even borrowed a couple of thou to put a full page ad in the New York Times with the headline 'Make Erin a Rich Woman- give a dollar today'. Do your sums, if every reader gives a dollar you can be a millionaire in no time!!!!!! crape like that adds up man. ANd now its all to no avail. Oh well, back to mugging old ladies for 50c. But I was forgetting, I don't do that no mo'. But I do like walking into the nearest 7-11 at 2.00 am and walking up to the dude behind the till and saying " are you really here on your own?" But seriuosly folks - well done Erin, it keeps teh wolves from the door  that much longer. I can stand the boyz down now can I?
Boo, the truth is out - you have a shoe fetish !! Can I put that on Erin's ad in the Times? What a collection of interesting people we have here. I wonder what next? Yally abducted by aliens? [from what I've read here ..............nope better not go down that road, people seem to like me!!]
It seems a much happierday on the thread, earlier in the week I was finding it hard to comprehend people's pain - if you haven't been there... Of course there is alwways the typically British attitude to aches, pain, childbirth, death and varukas:  upper lip is well and truly stiffened, the back is ramrod straight and the response to grief and pain is 'pull yourself together'. 
Boo  can't think of anything more offputting than injections in my heel other than injections anywhere else. I'm a man, I can't stand needles of any kind.
Mom24 - sorry to hear about rough nights, and that your meds are not working as well as you'd like. It's a bummer. I've just come around to accepting that I don't do straight through nights any more, I always wake up about 1 am for an hour or 2 so I put the headphones on and listen to drama and comedy on a digital BBC retro station. leaves me knackered during the day sometimes which is why I fall asleep at work and take tw or three weeeks off for vacation - hear that yally? 3 weeks vacation only this year its two weeks on account of my going into hospital and then I shall have a sort of vacation for 4-5 months recouperating - on full pay!!!!!!!! Where is that little green eyed god yal? And what the bleedin ell is plantar fascitis when it is abroad?? SOunds like something you should have amputated "I've got a nasty dose of plantar fascitis and it needs cutting off" .
Fly over to your side [nearly said the dark side for a minute there] Sunday landing at Dulles at 8.15 your time. Lock up your daughters and wives, hide the cat, the Bear is a coming lol.
I shallll be posting from the conference and I'me still thinking of flying to NY for thee day Friday - any offers hahaha.
Talk before I fly.
Stay well
The bear

glad everyone else plays punch bug........ lol i thought i was the only looser

plantar f ~u know when u have it! cant plant the foot down when i have it bad. no bear no protruding flessy things .The plantar fascia is a very thick band of tissue that covers the bones on the bottom of the foot. This fascia can become inflamed and painful in some people, making walking more difficult.

Thanks for explaining the foot stuff, Yally. So you still have flares with it? Have you had any relief?
Grandson cried for three! hours. He just doesn't like for anyone but his mother to look at him, talk to him, feed him, change him OR breathe around him. What can I say.....he's exactly like his mother was. My mom wouldn't even babysit with her. He's still the cutest thing around.
