Ugh… why me ???? Needing support :)

Hi 🙂 I’ve had RA (sort of) connective tissue disease ever since my daughter was born 11 years ago. Started with one inflamed knee than the other….. pretty scary time in my life. I’m on prednisone, methotrexate, sulfilizine, celebrex and trying Cimzia as of 3 weeks ago. Tried Enbrel and Humira (the only biologics that worked well for me thank god.) Tried Orencia and Actimerol and those two failed. Loved the Humira the most, fast acting for me and did well up until 2 months ago now trying the Cimzia that my Dr. suggested that I try. Pretty scared and patiently waiting to see what happens……
