For those that don't know me I was an original blogger when this site opened and have made many friends through it.
I had a bit of a bad year last year having to come off Humira to have what turned out to be 2 ops on my spine, when i went back on Humira it failed i was still taking MTX by injection but unable to take steroids due to the damage to my bones. I don't know why I stopped coming on here, i used to read the posts and understand what you were all going through and wanting to help but couldn't.
I've started on Rutixamab had my second dose yesterday, the first infusion had to be stopped when i had a reaction to it nothing major just hives and a horrible headache but the infusion was stopped and more steroids and antihistamines given.Yesterday it went really well just the headache which seems to have gone now.
So I say i've come back and will try to take more time to read and reply to blogs, in my first year of RA which was 2009 i found the forum so helpful it allows you to get things off your chest and hear other fellow RA ers problems then you realise how lucky you are. I met Ali and Julie in person and we went to the NRAS lunch meeting others that come on the site.
So slowly slowly I might not reply to every blog or question but you can always message me.
I hope that all old friends are OK and I look forward to hearing from you and meeting new friends
