I just moved across country by car. Took three days total. Aside from being completely exhausted for a week, I actually fared very well. The last time I took a long road trip, I couldn't move for three days because my joints were so swollen and sore. I completely expected that this time. I'm without insurance for the next two weeks, so here's praying I stay well during that time.
Been feeling good on again and off again. I just have to take it day by day. On my good days though I do feel much better. I am very greatful for that. I am having a problem with my blood work lately. Either my wbc or rbc will be low. They seem to be taking turns. Can't tell if it is from the MTX, the disease itself or something else. Both rheumy and primary doc are watching me. In the meantime, the fatigue seems to be worse, probably from the counts being off.
I am off for summer vacation right now and slept till noon today. I am hoping to get stronger and better over the summer.
Glad to see so many are doing better. It is great to be feeling better.
