After being off the drug for a week I feel so much better. My energy and appetite are back. I know the long term consequences of not having any medication for IPF but looking at the positives. Feeling great, no more encounters with my "study director" and her patronizing ways are all good. Also she was the world's worst phlebotomist -- broke through the vein every time! See the doc next week. Now back to the fun of life.
