I appreciate your blog.  I'm on cellcept also,and the way you explain things makes much more sense than trying to translate from the Rheumatologist.   I like the way you provide options to shedding stress too.

Carla,

I am so glad you are blogging about this disease, with humor no less. I just love it! As a Lupus patient since I was 19 with subsequent kidney failure, dialysis and now a kidney transplant last year all before the age of 36.Finding someone who has had the same experiences with the general population is funny too. I've had people I have told about it freak out when I explained it to them. They then think they have it too or that they can "catch" it from me...bla bla bla....

Keep on blogging!
