From this study (2 days ago):
In June, I had a UTI. Now it seems like I have another one in September. Did a home test and it was positive.
From this study (2 days ago):
over the last 6 month she has increasingly had fits of rage the most recent lasting for over 10 hours including paranoia, 2 suicide attempt . she attacked her husband cutting him on the face with car keys because her sister in law hugged him who was there with her own husband her brother to help clam her down which no one could do, the police had to be called. the police after releasing her recommended she go to the hospital and receive consulting which she refused.
even after all that hours later she text him saying ,she was resigning from her job ,he can have the kids ,he can keep everything the house the cars everything ,she was leaving town and he will never see her again.
i know this woman well enough to know that she is a dedicate mother and she would never just give up her house or the car that's paid for let alone ABANDON HER CHILDREN because she was having problems with her husband a man i've known my whole life my brother!
no way does this behavior make any sense, i've never seen or heard of anything like this .
this makes no sense ,so i asked myself what changed in her life ,she got RA about 1 year ago ,6 months ago started HUMIRA after using something else ,plus prednisone, and another autoimmune med.
this is the only thing that makes sense so i went online ,looked side effect of HUMIRA , and BAM now her fits of rage and depression paranoia NOW IT ALL ADD'S UP
SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS that way she was out of control she might had killed her entire family, if you have trouble believing this then i guess u just have to be there,
i'm still playing that explosion of anger and rage in my head and still can't believe it and i was there
people out there report anything that even suggest a side effects
