Went to the rheumatologist today. She thinks it is best for me to go onto another medication..She just wants me to feel better, faster, so i dont have to take as much of the steroids and pain meds.
Still, adding another 2 pills a day takes me up to 19 pills a day. 21 if i take my multivitamin, a few less if its a relatively pain free day.
I guess it is worth it though, if it can help me.
I do feel like im getting a bit better too. Not all the time, but the meds have taken the harsh edge off of everyday. the pain is still there but it isnt so bad.
Everyone around me is sick, it seems. My mom even is sick and no one can figure out why. My boyfriends ankle is screwed up and wont heal. A close friend is struggling to catch up to her disease. Everyone is falling apart! When I was younger..I didnt know anyone with a chronic illness, or disability. I think there were maybe 3 kids in my k-12 career that even had food allergies.
What the hell happened??? Now it seems like everyone I know has something wrong in one way or another. But I still meet people...who have no idea, and I used to be one of them!
Anyway, enough of that!
I'm doing alright, and thats alright with me.
So cherish what you have, no matter how small; you may lose it at any time.
