How do you manage?

My plaquenil prescription ran out and my rheumy didn't respond to the pharmacy's call, so I decided to take the down time to ttc. Now it's been a month and the arthritis pain in my feet is starting slowly increasing, but I want to give myself another month to try before I give up and go back on the meds. Does anyone else have a similar experience? How do you handle it? I've had a miscarriage and what I think was a chemical (positive test could have been defective, but then I had the same kind of bloat I felt when I miscarried). I'm also supposed to be taking cozaar for my BP, but I want so desperately to start a family, so I'm not. :\ I don't know what to do.  :(
