Just wanted to post a 'feel good post '
Last year I was off work with shingles which meant I couldn't take my RA drugs .This resulted in my RA running rampant in my body.I ached all over and on some days couldn't even lift a cup of tea
The clock was ticking work wise. Im a flight attendant which is a very physical job .Long hours different time zones .Family were saying that I ought to give it up :-(After 20 years of doing what I loved I wasn't ready to throw in the towel .Simponi wasn't having any affect
My rheumy suggested rituximab and leflunomide so last August I had my first infusion ( just had my second ) and it has got me back to almost the old me .
I'm so so grateful I'm now back in the skies flying to serve and all that jazz .
I guess what I'm trying to say is no matter where you are in your battle you will get there in the end .
Yes it can be frustrating and painful but what you are going through is a temporary thing .
With the right meds you can get back to being the old You !! Never thought I'd be able to say that last year
Keep strong .....you'll get there 😘.
