So, I’ve been under usual measures on the vitamin D front, I learnt at nurse check up today. Symptoms: fatigue, joint pain and other familiar bad boys for those of us blessed by RA. Ho-ho, I joshed, so maybe the RA diagnosis a whole fantasy of modern diagnosis for me. Ribald laughter from us both. But oh, I wish! Did another test fo Vit D, to see if still down and needing supplementation.

Still all else is very equal. Struggled when kids went back to school with the usual September onslaught of minor infections that lingered like the clap in brothel. Seem to be done with that now, and really doing well with the injectable methotrexate. Cannot discern any side effects from it at all.

Just had my 6 monthly Professor visit. 17.5mg MTX + Humira have me as well as can be hoped, hurray. Got my non-swollen knuckles rapped for falling off of nurse’s radar and missing 2 monthly checks. Ah, the joy of feeling well enough to, heh? and I’m pleased to report I am 34lbs lighter than at my last post and very much more active and toned 🙂
