Been awhile

It's been awhile since I've made a post! I've been doing really good lately. I saw my rheumy yesterday and i get to cut off the Prednisone !!! I will have half a pill for a week then stop completely cause I had already gone down to 1 pill a day when I started Enbrel. Not just that but he said to use the Diclofenac as needed. :D this also means I can cut out Omeprazole after this week!! I'm so happy!!! He checked out my knees and wrists and said he sees a big improvement I had no inflammation! :D The only downfall is that the past 2 shots of Enbrel I've been getting injection site reactions that are red/swollen almost and last a few days then it turns to a bruise. Anyone else get this and have any tips? The rheumy said to give it a few months and if it gets really uncomfortable we might have to change medications =/

I'm still looking for a job with good benefits, each day that goes by makes me worry more and more. It's hard not to think about. I faxed over my resume for an opening for a clerical/legal asst today that my dad found in the paper. So we will see about that one.

Ok but that is not the only exciting news.. i'm so happy about! I have an new boyfriend who is absolutely AMAZING! I've never met anyone like him everrrrrrr. He makes me soooo happy! One of the best things is that my RA doesn't bother him. So that blog I wrote here: Relationships, yeah I was worrying for nothing. He is really supportive and just, I don't know, just to good to be true

& something a friend told me a few days ago..

".... everything that happens has some kind of explanation of reason we ourselves conclude it to be. And yes it is okay, you know your strength and capability of knowing whats worth it or not. theres nothing that isn't or wouldn't be okay unless you, yourself say and believe that it wont be." she is right. :)

Well time to get ready for work. I'm happy i'm off fri and sat!


  1. Hey Skye! Glad things are going so well for you!

    Re the Enbrel and the site reactions, I had the same red thing happen for a few weeks, then it stopped just as suddenly as it started, so I'm hoping maybe the same thing will happen to you.

    Take care, good luck with the job hunt + enjoy your weekend!

  2. Skye, it sounds like everything is going great for you right now. When I was taking Enbrel, I had the site reactions but they didn't bother me. On a side note though, I have been doing Orencia infusions for 6 months and my left leg still has a bruise in the shot location (right leg does not). Weird.

    Good luck with the job hunt.
