me

This and that

Well, F&B didn't chuck my story back at me for being too long, but I got a "going to pass on this" from one of the assistant editors. Suck.

Got a $25 gift certificate from Micro Center and took off an hour and a half from work to go with Matthew to spend it. Two hours later, we're still stuck in traffic, and haven't even gotten onto 85 yet. So we turned around and came back home. We'll go out again later this weekend, not during rush hour, but it was a frustrating and disappointing Friday afternoon.

Also, my lab results came back. I'm not one of the folks who can't tolerate Imuran, so have the a-ok from my Rheumatologist to go ahead and fill the prescription and start taking it. But I'm finding I'm quite reluctant to. I like being on fewer meds. Plus, there's a slew of side effects to this one, par for these sorts of meds, I guess. They include: nausea/vomiting, increased frequency of infections, easy bruising and bleeding, and risk of developing cancer or leukemia.

Yes, I realize I should be taking something to keep me from having a MCTD/Lupus flare-up, but these drugs are scary.

Dragon*Con staff meeting today. I feel exceptionally blah. Hoping seeing some friendly faces will give me a pick-me-up.
