The vicious cycle

I feel so anxious and sad because it seems that if one thing is fixed another problem comes up. I have seen more specialists and paid more medical bills than a senior citizen.

If I take meds I get new side effects and problems that require more meds. If I don't take meds I suffer too. There is no winning.

Right now I'm really suffering from chest tightness and dizziness that may be from humira. It's taken a toll on my anxiety and depression too. I feel beat and my nerves are shut.

Do you take anything for anxiety? I finally talked to my Dr and started Wellbutrin. It really saved me!

I hope you start to feel better soon!

The statistics I see so far for my situation seem pretty good. There ARE long term statistics for the Anti-TNF drug treatments now. I'm here to make them longER.
