Hi JFC_1969. I just wanted to say "Hi."

To me, I feel any treatment that might improve quality of life is worth a try. I hope that with time you might find yourself feeling a little better once in a while, and that might be the beginning of good things happening!

I think I "know" you from the FM site. I hope you get some info on the ?Metho? injections from these folks who have RA. I've read they may take quite a while to help.
