interesting. she told me to do it, and honestly i love and trust this woman that if she told me that if i lit myself on fire it helped, i'd do it. she told me just to take it before i get on the plane, and when i get on the plane. i'll keep you posted with how it goes. thanks for the knowledge on what things to avoid. lord knows my mom will likely encourage me to take echinacea at some point. do you eat garlic at all, or avoid it all together?

it's awesome that the Methotrexate is keeping you un-sick. i keep joking that i catch everything that anyone within ten miles of me has (but really, i feel like i do). hopefully after a few months on the plaquenil, i find it works, or find something else to help combat my symptoms. the hardest for me is the fatigue. i've been out of the office for about 5 weeks now due to this and all of the illnesses that it has brought... it's really difficult for me to be out of the office (plus, i work in a really fast-paced industry, so being out and trying to keep up makes me feel so incapable).
again, i can't thank you enough for taking the time to respond to me. it's so calming to understand that people are going through what i'm going to, because this is so brand new for me.
fortunately this trip is just going back "home" (where i'm from) so that i can rest, hang out with my dogs, and let my mom take care of me for a few days. hopefully the travel goes easy. i'll be washing my hands like a crazy person. i'll be able to rest as much as needed when i'm there, and when i get back i still have two weeks until next year's work year starts. fingers crossed that this doesn't set me back.
i ate really healthy before i started getting exhausted all of the time... trying to whip myself back in to it. i know eating poorly isn't helping anything.
