Thats Not What I Thought I ordered…

You think you are ordering a rather plain dish and you get the fancy one. It looks amazing, it will taste good but it will not come out good. The fact is my digestive system hates meals that are mixed with creative sauces and unusual combinations. Troubles of work travel… #fancyhalibut

When the car in front of you drives too slow…

…and all you want to do is push them out of the way to race home & take care of business! 

4 months on Humira, 2 months with really good results. I’m trying to bring back a normal social life but I think my guts are saying not so fast!  

Traveling lots this month for work, lets see how this goes.

Humira – Just Keep Swimming 🐟

Humira for me is still up for debate if its working. 

🔘 Did I see immediate results? – No

🔘 6 weeks mark – Slight improvement . I stopped all other meds (6mp, allopurinol, & entocort) – I added prednisone

🔘 8 weeks mark – I texted my Dr really good results being seen. 

Fingers crossed this combo kicks it.  Even if this is a brief period of Prednisone high, I’ll take the relief and the journey to remission continues.  Dory sums it up well – Just Keep Swimming!

Check Please

Took Humira Pen on plane ☑️

Survived a week of work cocktail hours ☑️

Wore a swimsuit w/coworkers ☑️

Its not always easy to travel when your in a flare. After 14 years of this disease, my confidense to handle the tougher days is so much better. I am beyond thankful.  💛

Nesting….Darn U Humira

I found myself nesting this week prior to my first loding dose of humira… like I’m going to pick up a germ tomorrow. Slightly overkill.

Lucky Loo

How does one with UC just notice on the morning of her colonoscopy prep right before work that there is NO Toiletpaper in the house!! Lol… Lucky for me… a doozie was avoided and hit the store asap.

Holy Moly Humira

Its a flow chart disaster waiting to happen.

 I haven’t even started it yet and I think I’ve talked to 10 people between the doctor office nurses, insurance companies, regular pharmacy, specialty pharmacy, Abvie ambassadors and their own benefit folks…lol… it better work!
