So the diet has been working so awesome that I can’t believe it myself! I have had absolutely zero rash for over a week! But then while flying back from Colorado yesterday, I had a delay and what turned out to be an almost 3 hour delay. So I fell into my old self. I ate a caramel sundae smothered with hot carmel that kind that gets chewy and gooey as it chills against the vanilla ice-cream. Then I thought, aww what the heck, I’m doing so well with my illness that I can have the slice of cheese pizza. I felt fine until about 5 hours later. The rash came back so terrible that my thighs and abdomen and sides of my body were so hot and bumpy, and then i got chills, and then my joints started to hurt on my fingers. I went to bed early with extra blankets, so upset at myself for screwing up my hard work of following my ani-inflammatory diet so closely then falling off the wagon. I vowed in the morning to start the diet rigorously again and never stray again. It gave me a tatse of how bad my life was before. Tonight is Methotrexate night. I took my 4 four pills. Yes! Only down to four pills!!! YAY!
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.
