I Know, I Know…

It’s been a week of doctor’s appointments, and snow shovelling. None of which is fun.

 Yesterday we didn’t have power for twelve hours, and right now I think our power is hanging on by a thread. The snow is coating all of the wires and trees. The wires are sagging, and the trees are bending. It’s still snowing and I can see that I’m going to spend another pain filled day with a shovel…

You see, I’ve been diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome, and possibly Rheumatoid Arthritis. My doctor isn’t sure about the RA, but believes that I have an autoimmune disease happening. In fact two of them. She has started me on a DMARD, Plaquinel. It is a disease modifiying drug, and it takes up to three months to work. I’m also starting on Restasis for my very dry eyes.

Maybe too much information for a blog? Just being honest…
