Hi all - I just realized this morning that I have never introduced myself and just sort of jumped in here. Thanks for having me!
A little background: I was in the revenue / management side of healthcare for my entire career, running registration / charge control / insurance management / registration / billing / charity and bad debt for everything from small hospitals in the US to major four-campus medical centers. I was really good at what I did and loved it, but six years ago, I got laid off (not my fault - our President signed the business I was responsible for out of business), and at the same time my mother in law fell. I had to take everything out of her house, renovate it, and help sell it. I started a business (making candles, soaps and health / beauty items), started working on my Masters in Herbology (got to certified Herbalist), and started renovating OUR house.
Bottom line, my RA kicked off big time and I had to stop pretty much everything I was still working on in 2014 when I started the MTX.
I have RA, Hypothyroidism, Allergies, Asthma, Sjogren's syndrome and some smaller things.
My current therapy is 200 mgs of Minocyline with Folate and Pilocarpine, as well as some others not related to the RA.
Hope you are all having a wonderful day, Caeryl in the US
