Thanks so much shellbones! I really appreciate it!!! I need to check out my disability with work.. i actually had no idea that you could get partial disability! that would be great! We did our life insurance right after my son was born (before the IUD thing happened and I got sick), we talked about getting private disabililty, but since I am young and it is expensive we opted aginst it – Opps!!!! Work is great to get away from all the other stressors (though i have a very stressful job.. i have always been an adrenaline junkie and liked working in stressful environments like that).. but I am not working near the amount of hours I used to (my poor paycheck shows that- add in more stressors, plus all the medical bills ugh)! I imagine my dr’s would give me a note to say no overnights.. but I just can’t do that to my coworkers- i’ve worked with them for a while now, and they have been so understanding with all of this mess. that I just couldn’t make them all pick up my slack in that way.. I also am stressed about the immunosuppresants, I don’t think Ill be able to keep my current job if my immune system is down.. so I have no idea what I’m going to do.. being the breadwinner I need to have a successful job.. it will be a big change if I can’t do it anymore..
Did you notice when the immuran “kicked in”.. does it take up to a year? or is it immediate? I am already having improvement in my joint pains from the plaqunil.. I hope it improves overall energy too- EVERY muscle is just shakey.. I had a long dr’s appointment this week and just wanted to go on a run to relieve stress like I used to.. so I had a bad mental day just realizing how different life is now.. but I am VERY thankful I am still walking!!
