Week 3 Recap... Short & Depressing Edition
Friday, December 21, 2018
Going to try to keep it short, but basically binged a lot this week, didn't weigh in today (I didn't need any more negativity). Went to the rehumatologist Thursday because my knee has been swollen daily for one year. I had a shot in April, the shots usually help but that time it did not. I have not wanted to take medication and that is why I have put it off so long. Although they gave me the lesser of the evils as far as the medication goes, no RA medication is pleasant. It says it can cause nausea and loss of appetite (which I joke might be good for weight loss LOL), it can make you more exhausted, but my RA already makes me exhausted, and it can make you more sensitive to the sun. I already burn easily so not happily about that... and it says you can get orange skin... but it'll stop when you stop taking it... well if I'm supposed to take it for life that isn't really helpful is it? I know these are all just things that COULD happen but it was more than enough to depress me.
Then this morning I went to the podiatrist for a shot in my foot as I am dealing with that from hurting it in 2014. Needless to say I'm feeling defeated and am not a happy girl. Maybe next week will be better.
