Enbrel Again

Started using Enbrel again two weeks ago. Took my fifth injection today. Together with the 300mg/day of Cyclosporine I am hoping that it might take hold. After 15 days, though, not too much improvement. The scalp and legs appear to be marginally improved--though I have been more diligent in taking the Neoral and started Cyclocort topical steroid twice a day (not on the scalp however).

Feels like I'm back in that cycle of hoping and waiting that "something good happens." Each day I check wondering if indeed there might be a turn in the condition. Psoriasis plays those kinds of tricks on the mind. It's difficult to stay upbeat except for faith to make it through each day. And if that isn't enough, then nothing will be!
