Hello Internets.I don’t think I have blogged since November.  Oy vey.

I have been in kinda a dark place for a little bit…. but I am coming out on the other side.  Slowly.  I think.

Right around the time I stopped blogging I had a dr appt.  The appt was to discuss the fact that the meds were not working…. AGAIN.  During that appt the doctor dropped a bomb on me and told me that they felt like I didn’t just have RA, but that I had Lupus too.   Having an autoimmune disorder greatly increases your odds of getting another autoimmune disorder…. so I can’t say that I was totally surprised.  Sad tho.  Really sad…..  So, thus began dark time.

I had a few options for meds to take, to help with Lupus.  One had a side effect of depersonalization.  Basically an out of body experience, except worse.  Like on some bad crack worse.  So, I said no to that drug.  No to the next one too, because it’s side effects weren’t much better.  That left a drug that I took years ago for RA, but had stopped taking because they thought it was hurting my eyes.

So, on Christmas Eve I went to the VA for an Opthamologist appt.  They looked at my eyes and decided that they were okay for me to take the medicine again.  It arrived in the mail today.

I wasn’t sleeping well either, so they prescribed Morphine to sleep.  That has helped SO MUCH.  I am finally sleeping without pain.  Helllloooooo Mr. Sunshine!!

The other totally crappy thing that happened was that I accidentally ran over Moose E with my car.  I am lucky I didn’t kill him.  Two surgeries, two pins and tons of recovery time and he is feeling much better.

Moose E still has a long way to go…. but then, so do I.  🙂

I am going to start blogging again…. or trying.  I miss you guys.  I need you guys.
