I’m in the middle of exam week, so I can’t really write the way I want to. I just thought I’d leave you a quick update about how I’m doing. I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago and was given amazing news: no methotrexate. I can stay on the Plaquenil for at least another 3 months. He didn’t see any more damage in my joints. However, he told me that he needs me to try to lose some weight to take the pressure off my knees. My goal is to lose at least 10 pounds by August, which is when I have my next appointment. This is going to be a huge challenge for me, which is why I’m publicizing it. If it’s not a secret, I can’t slack.
Okay, that’s it for now. I’ll see you after exams!
