    Had my MDX 1106 and then the 6 injections of the peptides yesterday. I have thyroiditis caused by the MDX 1106 and was put on Synthroid…told it's not a problem and that its just an auto immune response. Was told my reaction is what is seen in IL-2 trials and is seen as having a positive reaction…ugh…side effects good news…bah humbug LOL. Hoping  to have some energy one of these days and hope to go back to work…SSDI doesn't pay the bills and the trauma of all of this…I would just like to move on and "pretend" I am normal again- at least for awhile!!

When the total income of the household is 1350 a month and medicaid wants you to pay over 1000 a month first- you know our society is broken….

      Lynn,

      Hope you feel better mentally and physically real soon.  I was at Moffitt all afternoon yesterday.  I used to post on off topic when I would be at Moffitt and I was able to meet up with several people that way.  Maybe I'll start doing that again.

      Hey Lynn,

      Stay positive.

      Do the best you can financially and don't worry as the worry does nothing but bad.

      Get better first.

      I hope that you can enjoy the holiday season.
