I'm sorry things are so rough for you now. I hope if you start feeling really bad you get to the ER however you need to. It doesn't seem right that they gave you nothing to replace what you are on and that they are just stopping you like that bam. But you seem strong, going to school and working, that's a lot.
As for the anxiety, I understand completely. I was a victim of home invasion, not once, but twice. The first time the counsellor said, the good thing about it was that it would never happen again, really low odds, and then a few years later, it happened again. I had trouble sleeping (I was attacked in my sleep both times) for so long and still get afraid sometimes to be home alone, though I feel very safe were I live now. The people here are nice and there is always someone to talk to, and maybe, since you are off your imuran, they could give you something for anxiety in hopes you don't stress out too much and have a flare. It seems the least your doc could do. I don't know what you already take, but maybe calling and speaking to the nurse might get you at least something. My doc did that for me when I had to go off my thyroid hormone and I'm still waiting to see another endo. The rest of my family was very grateful!LOL. I hope you feel better soon and that maybe you can get on a waiting list for a cancellation with the new rheumie and come in sooner. Best wishes for feeling better and getting into the new doc soon.
