It's been 6 months since a post ;( It hasn't been a very good 6 months.
I am currently not coping very well with managing my RA. I was doing so well keeping it under control and at bay through diet and supplements but everything stopped working and I actually gave in and tried methotrexate along with Simponi. It was something I never thought I would do, but in Jan and Feb I was unable to dress myself, put my hair up, open doors, drive... and most importantly I couldn't tend to my little guy. I had to rely on my husband and that was difficult for me.
Simponi was amazing.... for about 3 mths. Then it just completely stopped working. I have continued to eat super clean (no grains, limited sugar, no dairy, chemical free, whole foods only) but alas.... inflammation city!
So, I am moving on up the RA med line and I am scheduled for my first Rituxan infusion next Friday. Scary a bit but I'm trying not to google the side effects. I just need to feel good for a little while. I've had it with not being able to function. I feel like I'm banging my head into a wall.
Are any of you on Rituxan? Does it work for you?
