Ugh well I spoke to my doctor this morning, the blood tests they did the other day have come back showing a change in my white blood count. She said not to worry but to stop taking the sulfasalazine for 2 weeks and then we'll repeat the blood test.
She said sometimes people's bloods are just weird and it might not be the drug but they have to be sure.
I'm quite gutted, I thought it was going so well. No external side effects that I could see, but I guess my insides are telling a different story.
I'm still feeling pretty well, although I'm very anxious today - I feel like I'm back to square one.
I really really really really don't want to have to take methotrexate. I know it's silly and part of my denial but the thought of such a serious drug just reminds me of how serious this disease can get. Too scary :(. Also I know it's silly and trivial but I love going out and having a drink, I don't want to feel even more different from my friends than I do already. I guess we'll cross that bridge once the second blood test comes back. UGH. I hate this game.
