Wow!

That was an interesting, and I'm sure quite frightening at the time, reaction your mom had to that Advil, @~Christina!

I wouldn't take it anymore either!

And I'm with you on the Sulfa meds ...

That's the one I had the severe allergic reaction to and now have to carry a medical alert card because of it!

I can't ever take another drug that's a member of that family as it could prove to be fatal.

I guess since our bodies are a wash of chemicals themselves that sometimes the things we take don't interact very well with that.

I hear you about the being able to walk and use your hands too, @~Christina and I'm glad the Humira is helping you with that!

Appreciate you and @lizardlady helping by sharing y'all's experiences with me!

Well itís possible that the reason for my constant Asthma flare is Humira based on being on it for 6-7 shots it makes the most sense according to my Pulmonary Doctor.

Itís very rare .01% -1.0 % will have all my breathing symptoms... he sent me for a stat Cat Scan. I missed there call this afternoon, my phone was on silent Iíll call them tomorrow, I see my rheumatologist on the 14th and then a full Pulmonary functions test on the 19th and my liver ultra sound on the 15th and 4 week followup with Pulmonary.

I just have to be the one that gets the super rare pita sideeffect. . Bleh !

Gentle hugs !

Mr. Front is on his way to visit this weekend. I'm ready for cooler weather, NOT cold, just cooler. Could do without the associated pain though.

Oh Christina, that's great news about the CAT scan!

You can keep 25 degree stuff. It's in the mid70s here today. It's gorgeous!

Maybe, just maybe I am learning to take care of myself. Gameplan had been to go to Mom's this afternoon to work on the house, then get up early tomorrow for more work. Am exhausted and sore. So I'm staying home today to rest. I'll go up tomorrow and do what I can.
Staying home also means I can have a little fire in the fireplace tonight to celebrate the first cool weather this year.😁🔥

That warm fire sounds delish @lizardlady! ... Toss a log on there for me!

Glad the CAT Scan was clear @~Christina!

I did a little leaf peeping yesterday so am being a lazy bones today ...

Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

That is Lake Burton in the North Georgia Mountains.

I learned to do a little pfishing there when I was but a wee tadpole.

I know cold weather is not our friend but warm cozy fires (and sitting under a warm shower) certainly are!
