Happy Friday! New Post layout

Happy Friday, here is the new post for the prior week, not to worry if something comes up mid week I'll post as usual-

This has been a week of ups and downs, but ending on an "up", feeling better after having a rough Tuesday and Wednesday, lots of inner leg pain, due to running around to 2 appts, leg skin just did not appreciate all of the movement, so I took it very easy Weds and Thurs and it paid off. Today is Friday and I am back to a 4-5 in pain which is better that the 8.5 that I had earlier in the week. I think the turnaround has to do with a few things:

  1. The Chinese Herbal Tea I am taking
  2. No Tylenol, just ibuprofen (body had to get used to that) 
  3. Combination of Acitretin and Consentyx
  4. Mediterranean Diet
Here is last week's log:
