I am congratulating my body!!!

YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I just had my blood test results back for this month and my CRP was only 31!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooo pleased, last month it was 88 and i was fearing that my Anti TNF (Enbrel) was stopping working. If i'm honest i hadn't been taking it right since May this year. I don't know if others have the same problem but i have had to stop and start my Enbrel every 2 weeks or so since May due to little infections (ie, wisdom tooth inflamed, wee infection, cold etc...) (sometimes i wondered wether they actual were infections but we have to be so careful on Enbrel don't we). But i have been making a concerted effort since my 88 CRP result to maintain my injections weekly and this week was my 6th injection in a row! (does anyone else have the same problem with stop/starting the injections?). ( do you stop your injections just for a comman cold??)

I know 31 is still Moderate, but before i started Enbrel 9 yrs ago my CRP was continually 300!!! (VERY VERY HIGH), and since being on Enbrel it is normally around 20 which is great for me.

Anyway i know it is only a small success but It has made me very happy and very proud of my body. Today i am going to go and reward myslelf with a pedicure and a new hair do!
