Update and Days of Grace

I just have to say that I LOVED reading my comments from yesterdays post. Your Days of Grace lists were wonderful....and I plan to do that again in the future on days when Im not feeling up to blogging. Speaking of how I am feeling.... I went to my PCP today. I am officially off the Enbrel. Sigh. Now I wait to see one of my Rheumys in May and then start the Methotrexate. My PCP does not disagree with the Rheumys, but he also doesnt totally agree either. He knows the the Enbrel was helping so he can't understand why they are pushing for a change. I feel like Im in the center of a big Tug of War. And it is an uncomfortable place to be. I told him I was scared and he said he is scared for me, But he told me that he is on my side....so the second that I may feel that I want to quit the Rheumys plans for me, he will give me back my Enbrel. That is comforting, to have a backup plan. Either way, he filled my script for extra pain pills this month because we all know what is coming my way.....pain, pain and extra pain......plus enough fatigue to drag a workhorse down.
Sound like fun?! Any one want to join me?? Nah...didnt think so.

I already feel so guilty because I am so far behind on reading blogs and getting farther behind each day. Maybe someday I will catch up. Maybe.

Now on to todays Days of Grace....today I found Grace in....

-My PCP, who is standing behind me no matter what happens in the upcoming months.

-Spongebob....who is occupying my boys so I can post today.

-A nice long nap with R


oh no.....the boys need me so todays list is going to have to be cut back to 3......sorry.

I know that I'll never catch up with my reading when I go on vacation in May so I'll probably tell everybody that I'm going to reset all my posts to be read after I return and not to get too upset with me.

Perhaps you need a reset too…
