An update on my Chronic Life (including sky diving!) and health since my last post.
Cimzia! is a short film depicting life with Colitis and treatment with the biologic medication Cimzia. The video stars Schweenie Eleanor Roosevelt and Kitty Detroit, who help me cope with my chronic conditions and pain.
After the neurologist reviewed my Ambulatory EEG, I’ve been prescribed Keppra for partial epilepsy. Keppra carries some heavy mental and emotional side-effects.
The symptoms of chronic illness, disease, pain, and the side-effects of medical treatments resemble the monsters of Halloween. Here’s my evidence that my years of coping are doing more than making me resemble one of these beasts.
Although this is not my first experience with injecting medication at home to manage my pain, fatigue and other IBD and arthritis symptoms, it is my first experience with a classic syringe and Cimzia specifically.
