Enbrel it is!!

I’ve been meaning to update but it has been an exhausting week. I went to see my rheumy on Friday. After a 45 minute wait, he walks in and asks me which bio med I prefer —Enbrel or Humira. I told him I had no preference, as my insurance said they cover both. I was able to walk out of the office with two samples!!! Yay! I felt such relief to have a bio medicine in my hand when I got home. I spent the afternoon reading the literature and then getting some help to take my first injection. I never thought the day would come but I was able to give myself my first shot! Whew! The medicine burned so bad but I was able to get it done! I have spent the last few days feeling soooo tired and a major headache. I hope those are side effects that I can adjust to ok. More positive news is that I am done with my LTBI meds!!! What a rough three months taking those meds….so glad to be done! I was able to have a sub sandwich today…first bread in three months! It was a delicious sandwich! I’ve been resting and writing this week! Hope to have a proposal date soon! Crossing fingers! Have a great Monday and I’m adding some fun pictures from my weekend!
