I just realized it had been almost a year since I’ve sat down to write a post. A year? Seriously? Where does time go?

Since my last post, I moved to Austin, Texas. It’s almost as weird to type right now as it is to recite¬†my new address over the phone to the mail-in pharmacy. I often forget¬†my 312 area code was replaced by 512. ¬†Although I love Austin to pieces, sometimes I still want to shout, I’m from Chicago!‚Ķ But I suppose that’s becoming old news as I’m soon to embark upon the 6-month anniversary of my relocation to Texas. And since there are something like 150 people moving to Austin each day, I’m¬†officially a¬†local by now.

New job, new dates, new address, new puppy, new cowboy boots and a fresh new perspective on life‚Ķ. But with all of those changes, one thing remains constant, I still have RA. On the bright side, I escaped the worst winter Chicago’s most recent history. And along with that, I saved myself from a lot of extra pain and stiffness that for me comes hand in hand¬†with cold, brutal weather.

I will soon be testing Actemra, a newish RA injectable. Have you or anyone you know tried this medication? Would love to hear about your experience with this drug because after all, sharing is caring.

Be well my friends.
