I forgot what it feels like to live a normal life and I may never experience it again. I have hope, however, with new developments in pharmaceuticals and biotech devices. I keep up with the latest trials and breakthroughs on the horizon.
In the meantime, I do my best with the medicines I am currently taking. No, its not the injectables anymore. I gave up on those in May. Now, I take Plaquenil and Xeljanz. It has taken 3 years to discover these two drugs worked the best in my body – for now.
I know there will come a time when the meds will decrease in their effectiveness. I will work with my Rhematologist once again to find what works.
I am about 60 percent of my normal self. Grateful for the life I have at the moment. It’s good and sufficient for what God has me doing for now. I know if He invites me to join in new adventures, He will match my wellness for the energy needed.
I look forward to 2019 and all it will bring – good days, low days, restful days and days of exuberant activities. I am ready for what will come.
