more than a feeling

The 30-day experiment: part the third! has come to an end, and I think rather a successful one. I did indeed write every day for 30 days and, as I suspected, I have a wealth of ideas for future posts.


Including this one. As I said before, I had my highly anticipated visit with my NP. I’ve been on the new treatment—Enbrel, Plaquenil and MTX, plus Omeprazole (Prilosec) and a stronger muscle relaxant to help me sleep—for a few days now, and what a difference it’s made already. I feel more like myself than I have in a long time. The brain fog has receded, my pain levels have dropped—albeit only from a seven to a five or so, but it’s certainly a start—and I’m sleeping better. I can concentrate on writing (necessary, as a journalist) and I just feel human again.

It’s a nice feeling.
