Wow! This year has gone by quickly!

Hi everyone
I know it has been quite some time since I last posted but I have been busy working on my dissertation...Chapters 1, 2 and 3 are done. Well they are just in the revision stages! Long story but My committee chair took a new position at a new university up north and we were given a new committee chair. She is one of my favorite professors ever! But she has a different style of writing preferences so as stated...revisions!
RA update!
Still on methotrexate and now they want me to begin Humira again! Ugh! Still taking sulfursalazine and Vitamin D which apparently I am always deficient in every time I take a blood test! Still struggling with weight!

My dad is 3/4 complete with his Radiation treatments.
My aunt Yvette passed away on July 6, 2011
My aunt Josie is still in the fight with her cancer

It's been a long year! But God is good!
so until next time I will pray for you and please pray for me!

As always my friend. I know about fighting the weight battle as I, myself am fighting it with my diabetes, but like you said, God is good and helps us in ways we don't understand. Love to you and the family. Miss you all!

I'm 75 year's old and I've had RA since 1995 and was on almost every medicine you can think of for RA. My morning stiffness lasted almost all day and was getting worse. My doctor finally started me on Enbrel and Methotrexate almost two years ago, and I could almost jump out of bed in the morning and I've been good ever since. However, the high cost ($1,500 per month) will eventually use all of my retirement savings and then if I don't find a way to pay for it, I'll have to give it up and go back to my old miserable self.
