As I look back at 2017 I can’t help but to be thankful for the support of my family and friends. All of you in this forum have been such a support and I will be so ever grateful. You all have been there for both the ups and downs. I read some of my old posts (which made me tear up) and was just so amazed how kind, patient and supportive you all are. Some of my posts especially the early ones were so sad. I forgot how far I’ve come. God, I was so sick...As I look to 2018 I am starting to see the light. I’m currently flip flopping between 3mg and 4mg of Rayos (time released Prednisone) and my weekly Actemra shots. The day before my shot I used to feel horrible now that has passed. I see my doctor in 3 weeks in which I should be flipping between 2mg & 3mg. If all goes well I should be off everything by April or May. This is the best I’ve ever felt in such a long time. It is rare when I get that flu feeling now. My only reminder PMR if the occasional soreness in my arms & shoulders. I joined a gym and hired a yoga teacher to work with me initially one to one. She is doing Yin yoga with restorative moves. She is also doing personal training but in the pool. She is my age and a cancer survivor (Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma) and believes water therapy and yoga played a huge part of her healing process. It feels good to get back to myself finally.
God bless you all! Happy New year!!!
