Welcome to WHL. We certainly have our share of Aussies and New Zealanders lately! It is so much fun for me to chat with friends in so many parts of the world. It's really interesting to learn about your experiences with all of this. When we complain about our docs or insurance companies here in the US, it is often very interesting to get the perspective of you folks who live in other countries.
I'm taking Methotrexate, since I can't take steroids at all. We used to have a long-running thread, called It's M-day, in which several of us discussed our experiences with MTX. I'll see if I can bump it up for you, or I'll ask Rob to find it for us.
I'm glad that your sweet daughter brought you to us. Fell free to jump into any discussion or ask questions. There is usually someone around here with an opinion!
