This week the AS is trying my patience.  90% of the time, I try and function with some degree of normalcy.  10% of the time, I want to SCREAM and then I deal with a bout of depression.  Usually last less than a day.  Mornings were the hardest in the beginning, now they're the best part of each day.

      Thanks for responding Popeye. I have been on Humira since April.  Last week I was switched to etanercept.  First injection in 2 days.  I hope I achieve your results.  Am not a whiner my nature; have had quite a bit of upper back/chest/ribcage pain since last Sept.  It is persistent.  Haven't had much luck finding info in these discussions. Again, I appreciate your response.
