After spending the past 2 years in the UK hiding inside my apartment on account of my compromised immune system and the constantly high COVID rates outside I am desperate to escape to somewhere a bit safer so I can start living life again.
Prior to my AS diagnosis I had been working in China as an English teacher and I absolutely loved it. At the time I had already been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis but all of my medication was in pill form so I took over what I had and it wasn't too difficult or expensive to purchase more when I was over there.
But now I've had AS thrown into the mix too it's a bit more complicated. My Enbrel injections being very expensive and needing to be kept refrigerated makes things difficult.
I originally thought of coming back every so often to the UK and picking up a few months worth of injections at a time. But travel restrictions at the moment may make that impossible and there is the risk that the injections may not be able to stay cold enough on the journey.
I'm thinking about moving to Taiwan as I have heard that it might be possible to have my biologics covered by health insurance there so if anyone has any knowledge about how things are there I would love to know!
But I am also open to moving elsewhere so if anyone knows somewhere I can go that will be easy and affordable to get my hands on Enbrel please let me know!
