I have decided I will no longer be taking Simponi. I believe that the combo of Arava and Butrans is helping my skin and inflammation significantly. I will accept the need to take 2-4 naps a day if it means that my pain levels and arthritis flares are what I consider bearable. I don't believe I am employable still. I have so many issues with fatigue that I couldn't make it through a work day. I also still do have mobility and dexterity issues that make doing even clerical tasks painful and impossible most days.
So there you have the last 2 weeks and my excuse for not keeping up with my blog. I will try to do better. My oldest daughter is coming home Friday and we will be leaving for Phoenix to spend the holidays with my family. I can't wait to get there. I miss my family every day and I feel SO much better when I am there physically.
