Just wanted to say thanks God for Plaquenil.  I'm so glad that I can take it since I think I would have trouble taking the other meds because of my liver.  It has finally kicked in and is such a blessing.  I feel so much more like my old self, I can do a crossword (I like the internet crosswords at washington post or ny times archive because theyre free) and I can write and do more.  It's good that there is a medicine that doesn't have too horrible side effects that can really make life better.  Just wanted to say thanks for this drug, God!  Also, thanks for Ultram/tramado so I don't have to get addicted to narcotics but can have pain relief.  And thanks for giving me this long of a stint being able to take them without a problem.  Hope it keeps up!  And thank God for Healing Well too!

Marji, I'm so glad that plaquenil is working well for you and that tramadol is providing some good pain relief too. I hope both of those meds continue to work well for you. With everything you have going on you deserve something good.

Take care
