Hi AlwaysRosie & Heartsong
Thanks for the support and advice.
I've been trying to come to grips that I have this and now i have to learn to deal with it.
I think your right about
learning to pace myself. I used to work some very long days up to 32 hours long to get things fixed for public transportation, but it would take a week to recuperate from that. Those days are over. It's about
live for now not what should be or could be but what is.
When I've been researching MCTD it has mentioned kidneys as one of the things affected. I'm not positive that the kidney infections are directly involved, but they do tend to happen during flares.
DX: IBS 00, MCTD 05, Depression 06, Sjogren's 07, GER 08
Meds: Plaquenil 400mg, Prednisone 20mg, Celebrex 200mg, Effexor 150mg, Nexium 40mg, Metoclop 10mg and numerous other supplements
Life is what you make of it. Just something I try to remind myself every day.
