I have a fever(!), I did not allow my body the rest it needed because I was too manic to sit still, It’s Sunday-not so fun-day, and I discovered a rash on my arms and feet.
I should have gone to bed after finding the rash but I diagnosed myself with lupus instead! I’ll just go to bed next time.
If only I had positive news…
I will begin Methotrexate on Sunday. The most common side effects, she said, are: hair loss, gastric issues, and mouth ulcers. I was given the option of pills or self injections. The self injections are more tolerable than the pills, so I chose injections. I will be on it for a year…She thinks. The good news is I get to start lowering my prednisone dose next month!
I do now know what to expect from this. I am scared. I am tired. I want to be done.
I go to MD in a week. I get to see Joon and Jeannie for two weeks! This will be a good distraction.
