There will always be bends in the road (& in my bones)

So, I haven't posted in awhile!

Its not because I haven’t wanted to but as life does, it throws up bumps in the road that we can not foresee & everything can come at once.Top that with having a spoonie body & things can easily grind down to a halt.

So, since my last post I have seen the duty rheumatologist (again!), as I have been experiencing pins & needles in my legs since my last flare. The rheumatologist thought it was either steroid diabetes or something wrong with the nerves due to the inflammation I had in my legs. So I’ve been tested for steroid diabetes & its not that so I’m now currently waiting to have nerve tests on my legs… sweet! (urgh)

I’ve have also been diagnosed with another skin condition (my immune system hates me!!). So this means that although my psoriasis is now under control (thanks to my Humira) it is now being replaced with another skin condition, oh the irony!

I’m grateful that my new Doctor is really nice but its been a pain in the backside trying to get appointments because the administration is so messed up. To top it off, I have to also have surgery, luckily it should be small. The bigger issue though is that I will have to be off my arthritis meds for two weeks before & six weeks after, urgh. So there goes my rheumy nurse’s wish for me to have a solid run on my meds. You see this is what a lot of people don’t understand, complications arise & people don’t seem to understand that arthritis is not just a dull ache.

And then to end unfortunately my Dad passed away, I’ve left it until last to write about not because I don’t care, I really do but I just don’t know what to say really. He had been ill for awhile, not that that is a comfort & although things in my family haven’t been simple, many families aren’t simple, I do miss him.

So yep! you get the general gist, its been a bit tough & this doesn’t even include tearing my shoulder muscle or computer problems etc. I’m hoping to start posting again soon but you can see why I haven’t

So bye for now!
