Rheumatologist today. He's putting me on an IV infusion schedule of every 4 weeks, instead of 6 weeks. I get an IV treatment for my rheumatoid arthritis, which slows the progression and helps me tremendously. It's just that I am not only going to have to have blood tests every month, but now I'll be in the Chemo Clinic for 4 hours every month. This rant is because I HATE NEEDLES. I can't watch when they stick me. I can't even stand to have someone touch the inside of my elbow. I just have to remember, I am much, much, much better off with the meds!
