Well my rheumy visit was interesting! I found it interesting that for the longest time I felt like an observer in my rheumy visits…more like sure whatever you say. This time I was more vocal. I told her how I felt about the Imuran and how exhausted I feel all the time. I also mentioned my dislike of weight gain due to the steroids and the Lyrica. We had a good discussion (although frustrating one) about I finally got my lab results back. She was right….from the labs…my Imuran seems to be working so all the pain and the flaring might be more the Fibromyalgia. Rheumy decided to bump my Lyrica up to 450mg. a day! I KNOW!! A lot! And she also ran a vitamin test…apparently I am Vitamin D deficient. Soooo yah I get to take yucky prescription 50,000 units of vitamin D.
I think it might be easier to take a beach vacation and bake in the sun….but alas that isn’t working out! The good news I am all packed and ready for my trip tomorrow. I am headed to present a paper! I have had these thoughts running through my head all week, I pray I do well. I pray I remember what I need to remember and I pray that I do a great job!
I am sad to leave my hubby, I also miss him so much when I am gone. The hotel rooms might be nice but I still miss my own bed! The perk is though that we have facetime! That really makes my time away so much better. The sad news is that my IPad started having issues..the screen looks all weird. I searched online and apparently a circuit might be faulty 😦 The good news is that it still works but it has a funky screen 😦
Off to do library research! Rest well everyone!
