Thanks for your input. I am seeing a Rheumatologist right now and tomorrow will be my second shot of Enbrel (weekly). I definitely need to get better at maintaining movement - currently I am a little too flared up and it is painful to walk, but once the medicine kicks in I hope to get back into a "normal" routine.

The radar technology is interesting stuff. I worked on both Airport surveillance (new tech) and tactical ground radars (much older and outdated equipment).

Interesting that you are an RN. I was just accepted into Nursing school. How were you able to deal with the disease/pain while nursing (especially ICU/Medevac). I would imagine that was/is no easy task!
