Hi Everyone:

I just wanted to share that today I've had the most productive day since my last flare!

I'd been pretty concerned because I had had periods of seizures, dementia and passing out along with bone cracking pain in the spine. I was concerned about permanent damage. 2 weeks ago the rheumatologist increased the Imuran from 50 X 2 a day to 50 X 3 a day. I had still been having to sleep for long periods of time but today, I did housework, non-stop for several hours! I almost fell asleep once but was just being lazy, so that doesn't count.

Hope

Silly

Hope......Sounds like you did, I was the opposite today....haven't slept for the past two nights so did nothing today....am really tired. Hopefully sleep Wil come tonight. I am glad you were able to get up and do housework......just don't over do.

I know it feels good when you can finally do some of the normal stuff of life again. Sometimes I surprise myself when I'm doing something, and I'm like, OMG, I'm doing this and I feel OK. You know? It's usually when I'm down on the floor playing with my daughter and I haven't realized that I'm not feeling pain, or something like that. Yes, and I agree with Eva, please take it slow. Try not to overdo it. Our bodies are so precious.

Thanks for your input.

I had another good day today but know not to go full speed ahead.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend

Hope
