I FIRED MY RHEUMY
This last week was supposed to be my 6 month check-up with my rheumatologist at the University. I cancelled my appointment and fired my rheumy. The last 3 appointments I had with her, she took the entire time trying to convince me to go on the biologic medicines I am trying so hard to avoid. My aunt took those meds, she still fused. Her back is one complete bone. A lot of good they did her, except to give her a bacterial infection she has never been able to get rid of. I think I will pass on those drugs until I have no other choice. If you are taking those kinds of drugs and they are working for you, I think that's wonderful. I'm just not willing to chance the side effects that come with it when I have other options that are working for me at the moment.
