    Aw geeze Paul, yes, this whole 'getting older' thing ain't for the faint of heart.
    Sending you all the good vibrations I can.

    I recently received a diagnosis of Rumatiod Arthritis. Full body style. I'm living on Methatrxate and Prednazone. Yuck!
    But I'm still giging man! YeeHaw!

    No Benzine exposure as far as I know, But I did own a '65 Chevy van for years that had the engine between the seats that ran on leaded gas and didn't have the best insulation. I probably breathed gas fumes a lot over the years. If there is a direct cause, that might be it. I figured that with all of the air leaks the fumes probably were cleared out. :confused: Who knows? And there's nothing I can do about it now.

    And thanks for all the good wishes, everyone. It means a lot to me.

    A quick update. I had my first round of treatments last week. I think we found the rhythm to it all. The first day I felt like a human pin cushion. They gave me two units of blood the second day and another two on Labor Day. I saw the doctor on Monday and it looks like things are off to a good start. I had some redness and soreness from the injections, but it turns out that they can do an IV instead of with shots. (Oh, now you tell me...) The next round is scheduled for five days rather then seven, so that's positive. Other then a reduction in appetite and energy, I feel pretty good.

    Thanks for all the good thoughts and all sent my way. I appreciated it!

    Glad to hear it went well. Sorry to hear that you’re having to deal with it. Really hope the rest of the treatments aren’t too bad.
