The posts brought a tear to my eye! Lol. it feels like "OH you do understand, dont you?!"
Such an amazing feeling when it is so impossible for family and friends to grasp sometimes. I am on Plaquenil and Mobic, and only have to take a Prednisone pack when I have a flare. The Plaquenil manages my arthritis wonderfully. I was on Methotrexate when I first started showing the signs of Arthritis because of how rapidly it was spreading. I have really gotten most of my illness under control as far as the day to day nusciences, and I believe that once I start my CPAP machine for my apnea, my quality of life will improve immensely!
I have had a hard time coming to grips with the fact that I have to take care of my body now. I no longer drink, I exercise regularly and eat extremely healthy. Actually, besides the couple of issues I first mentioned, I am actually doing well, and much much happier just having a diagnosis of some sort. Makes me feel less crazy.
Thank you all again for your replies, they really made my day, and I look foward to chatting/posting with you all!!
I ffel like I am home!! lol
I was thinking today about your post, and I constantly get clogged ear like feeling. I know that zyrtec helps, so maybe I do have some kind of allergies?
