Thank you for the warm welcome.
I recently returned from out of the country which is why I've been MIA since I started the thread. Unfortunately I'm still flaring up but I'm doing better. My energy is coming back lilttle by little. I cut my hair again because it started falling and thinning out. The rash on my face is fading as well. I've also been having issues with my hemoglobin levels. To help this issue my hematologist put me on this shot called Aranesp. I had my first injection about 3 weeks ago before I left for vacation. I know this is suppose to help me and it's something I need but for some reason it scares the hell out of me. The day I went i broke down in the office. I mean the water works were flowing. It was so overwhelming. I go back again on Wednesday for another shot. The doctor said I have to continue the shot until my levels improve. He said I'm at an 8 and he wants me at a 12.
That's pretty much the major stuff I think. I've gotten so use to the little everyday things that I really don't pay it any mind. I'm quite sure everyone knows where I'm
I will keep you all posted. Thanks again for welcome.
