sulfasalazine did not work

After a week on Sulfasalazine, I lived with constant nausea. Lost my appetite. Lived in a fog.

Enough was enough!

I stopped taking it and I do feel much better. Nausea is receding. The fog has lifted. I feel human again. This morning I did my yoga routine. Tonight I walked Jimmy, my 100# dog.

I got a good days work in. Orders to lab, photographing a HS senior, setting up a new assignment, scheduling new appointments and on it goes.

I am plowing through all the Eve Dallas series by Robb.  I am up to #14. About 20 plus more to go. It’s really like one book that keeps on going. Nice escapism. Dependable.

I am still on the methotrexate and plaquenil and prednisone and meloxicam. Those I can tolerate. They do help me.

There is a fine balance between RA symptoms and medication side effects. Thank goodness my balance is better.

Life is good despite the obstacles. It's worth the ride just to see the infinite variations of the human spirit.
