Hi there,
Thanks for asking how I am doing. It seems like I kinda disapeer from the site when I am feeling better. I guess I am bad support for everyone else! But I guess I also tend to not spend much time on the computer when I am feeling okay. The generic plaquenil was working pretty well until the pharmacy switched manufacters. I just started on the brand name a little less than a month ago. It took about 3 mo. to work before so I am waiting..... other than that we just bought a house and I start nursing school in January, so something better start working!
Take care
Dx: UCTD,Raynaud's,iron deficientcy anemia,proteinuria
Rx: Multi-rec folic 500, Mobic 15 mg, Plaquenil 400mg

That's good. I do the same thing sometimes My bf yells at me to get off the pc and when I feel better I have chores to catch up on and things I couldn't do that I want to do so I'm the same. Sometimes I think we like to try to forget we have this illness sometimes. I hope the new plaquenil works for you. That's great about the house and nursing school. You will be a great nurse with your illness background, you already know so much! I've just been having gi problems that are worsening and they may be from meds, but I need to keep taking the meds and they may be from my liver disease getting worse or another problem. I'm getting dx for cushings disease which is a pituitary/adrenal deficiency and I may be on regular prednisione daily for the rest of my life, but it may help e get a lot better. Glad you are doing well and post again when you feel like it. I always like to hear from you.
Love, Marji
