Four days ago it was once again time to go to the hospital for my medication. I’m quite happy to have a medication that only requires me to go there twice a year. It is much easier to schedule other fun things such as traveling when I don’t have a medication I need to take weekly or once a month.
The medication (Mabthera) works well for me and my RA is in remission according to the doctor. I guess I should be happy but considering I have so much pain in particularly my wrists and fingers I don’t feel like my illness is in remission. It feels highly active…
Yesterday I talked with my rheumatologist and was told to take more cortisone pills daily and then we will talk again next week. Normally a higher dose of cortisone works like magic and I feel no issues but even though I’ve taken more pills both yesterday and today my body do not feel good at all. 😦
Some days I just hate this illness and would do anything in order to have it go away.
