Hello my dear friends...I have missed you all very much! Also hello to all the new people that I have not met yet!! I did not realize how much I missed this forum until my sister, Shannon (damouthy1) told me that she was back on here!! I guess I have been having a several month "pity party" for myself and I really hate to post when I am feeling so negative!! I needed some time to try to accept who I am now! cry I know that you all understand me when I say that accepting that, is not an easy thing to do! I know that isolating myself is not a good thing to do, but I did have my sister here, which helps a lot! I am very worried about her! I wish one of these darn doctors would get her on some meds that will help her and stop some of the damage that is happening, instead of just fixing things after the damage is done!! She has another surgery scheduled for tomorrow! At least when I worry about her...it takes my focus off of me!

Anyway....I have been going through alot, hurting alot, starting new meds, quitting meds and going back on them, trying to work part time and basically just trying to adjust to the new....and "not improved" me! The RA and Fibro both seem to be getting worse, along with my back problems! Plaquenil seemed to be helping a lot when I first started taking it...but some days I feel like it is doing nothing for me!! I may have to go on something else but I am scared of most the other meds! I will just have to see what happens, I guess!

I wish you all lots of LPD! Again, I am sorry I was gone so long and I am very glad to be back!! yeah

Take care of you...all of you!
