Small world

Last night, our tax guy came over to prepare our tax forms. I was at my computer, working on an environmental services proposal for the office, while hubby and tax guy were crunching numbers. (I'm usually the one who gets all the tax stuff ready, but this year I was busy and hubby volunteered to do it.) I was half-listening in case they needed any info regarding my editing business.
Their discussion turned to the topic of medical expenses and the cost of prescriptions. Tax guy is retired from the aerospace industry and gets great benefits. He mentioned that his wife is on a med that she injects every two weeks and he pays only a few dollars for it. Then he said the name of the med: Humira. So of course I jumped up and joined the coversation.
I found out that she's taking the same combo of meds that I am, but she has more than one autoimmune disease. I've never met her, but I wonder if she's a DS member? I got their email address, so I guess I can ask. I've never actually met anyone with RA, unless you count the brief chats I've had with people in my rheumy's waiting room.

I\'ve met several people while getting infusions, but not many. My brother has RA, too, and it\'s heart-wrenching to hear his struggles.
