I have just read some of my old entries and am so thankful that I have come such a long way. Enbrel is still working and I am back to doing everything that I did before. I ride my Bike and hike with my Dogs everyday. I should say walk. Hiking on weekends as the weather is so nice right now. Well, then comes the bad news, I was feeling dizzy and kind of not feeling good Friday, so I took my BP and it was extremely high(206/106) so my Husband took me to the ER, which my Dr. told us to go. By the time I got there it was 224/90 something. They gave meds to lower it, took xrays of my Chest and bloodwork, all came back ok. So now I have to take BP pills too. I don't want to be on so many meds already. I have been under alot of Stress with my Husband still not having alot of work, since his boss sold the Company. He is only working ever once in a while. Not enough to make a living so we are still living on savings and I am glad I have enough til January then it runs out. I know I have Faith and God will see us through this difficult time too. I have been looking too and maybe I'll find something. I just want to get my BP in check first. Anyway, I wanted to write an update on how I was doing.

Hey Bigi! Sorry to hear about the bp trouble. I know what you mean about being on all those meds. Its good to hear that your RA is still doing good. I hope your hubby will find more work real soon! Take care!
