N=1 - Oy, I'm schlepping

I have nothing witty or informative to say today. I appear to be stuck in an immune-deprived vortex - I'm still sick. This isn't a flare - it's the flu. It has been 2 1/2 weeks of this. Cough, runny nose, worn out.

So here's the vortex.
  • I can't take my Humira while I'm sick, because it dampens my immune system, and potentially prolongs any illness/infection I might have.
  • BUT, I can't take my Humira while I'm sick - I'm 8 days overdue for my shot. So far, I'm not in terrible pain, but I can feel the arthritis starting up in my hips and toe.
My drug is making me better, and my drug is keeping me sick. This is a fascinating vicious circle.
