I have been doing the Humira now since september and have been feeling pretty good, no more joint pain (for the most part) and the d is better most days but feel so tired all the time.  If I don't have to work or HAVE to go anywhere then I end up sleeping most of the time or fighting to stay awake to do something productive at home.  Still can't seem to get much done, have to take many breaks and it feels like climbing mount everest just to get the dishes washed or the laundry done.  I went sledding with my in-laws and I wend down the hill 1 time because walking back up the small hill almost killed me.  I was fighting back vomit the whole rest of the day.  When will this fatigue go away or will it?  I guess I can't complain much because overall the rest of my problems are either gone or reduced cd wise.  Is this trade worth it?  I have a 5 year old that wonders why mommie is too tired all the time or sleeping all the time.  any advice would be greatly appreciated.
