Hi Jeannie,

I too, am a New Member here. I've been on methotrexate, plaquenil and dapsone for about 5 years now. I'm now 50 and looking
at pre-menopause. I'm wondering if perhaps your mood swings could be related to the beginning of menopause? When I had a
flare several years ago, my rheumy put me on prednisone with the goal of getting off it when the immunosuppressant (methotrexate)
kicked in. Thankfully I was able to be completely off of prednisone about 2 years ago. I'm now on some hormone replacement
therapy for some mood and insomnia issues. I know you may be a bit young for premenopause - just a suggestion.
Pardon my ignorance, but what are TNF drugs? And you are correct - because we often don't look ill, most people don't get it!
Take care.
 I don't get to come here very often but I do like to try to keep up with new folks and give them a huge welcome to the group. Tere are lots of great people here that are very supportive.
Again I'm gonna feel silly if you have been welcomed already but trust me when I say it won't be the first time lol
