Well I survived another trip to Florida and back.

My breathing was improving but a gazillion cars and pollution have me back to wheezeville.

While bringing in our luggage and that damn heavy oxygen concentrator I have really hurt my back. I just wanted to get it done quickly , he was getting our well turned back on and replacing whole house filter.

My husband had to help me get up out of bed !!!! So embarrassing

Iím hoping my back heals quickly !

Fibro is as expected with strange beds and 12-18 hours in the car.

Just to update everyone, it's been weeks since I reached out to Cakelady. Still no answer. I'm hoping this means she's either to busy to respond or has moved on from PC, but am afraid it means something bad.

Hey Liz thanks for asking.

Iím still pretty banged up back wise, thatís all my fault so....

My breathing is getting better. I just hope itís better enough when I see my rheumatologist for him to start a different biologic. Of course it usually takes a few weeks for my damn insurance to agree to cover it, itís crazy most biologics are 1200.00 a month and up !!!! If paying cash , which who can do that anyway ?!? Then it takes a couple months to see if it will help.. hurry up and wait wait wait.

My god I will beg him to do injections on my right hand middle finger , no itís not from over use in Florida LOL ! It just feels like lava and hard blinding shooting pains almost constant now. All my joints feel awful but wow this finger is like a tooth ache.

I also fear something has happened to cakelady she had a lot of serious health problems and also a lot of nonsense with family members too

Howís the work going at your Momís place??? I hope somehow you have been able to pace yourself a bit better, but I understand you wanting to get it done and over with.

Gentle hugs

Ok Rheumatologist and I decided to try Xeljanz 5mg twice a day. So they need to get it authorized and that usually take a few weeks my insurance company loves dragging there feet on anything expensive and this is one of them... cash price is 4,915.00 per month ?!?!? Who in the holy hell could pay that. ( insert rant on big Pharma here)

This medication is a pill and not an injection but it carries the same risk of lowering my ability to fight infections etc etc but thatís fine I just need the pain to ease.

My Body has been telling me for days a cold front is coming and my weather guy confirmed it. Saturday more rain and then 35+- drop in temp. Oh joy
