I have been feeling great! The steroids are tapering down and the methotrexate is doing it’s thing, I guess. I have energy and I sleep really well. I went for blood tests Monday to check Medrol levels, ferritin levels, etc. We will see where the ferritin level is now. Hopefully, back to normal.
I am anxious to get back to work!! It is hard to stay away from a career that I love so much!
The interesting thing is I seem to have more energy now than I have ever had before in my life. I have more enthusiasm, I have more interests, I have more desire to learn more things and create more art, and publish a book and get my inventions off the ground, and learn new languages.
I think I have a new disease called, I- can- do- it- all -itis” . I guess it’s better than a disease that makes you want to stomp on people’s feet, or a compulsion to plant poison ivy. I guess I just have a passion for living. I feel happy all the time. I have realized that that we really do have a very short time on this planet. I just want to make the most of it, make people happy, enjoy my career to the fullest, bring people joy, love and be loved. There really isn’t much more in life than this.
I acquired AOSD in 2008. I have suffered so terribly and have found ways to help me regain my life. This my personal journal of this mystery illness to diagnosis. I hope that I can help others with my experience and information.
