I'm off to a lecture today, by a distinguished American rheumatologist who has a particular intterest in Fibromyalgia.
It will be good to be in a hospital again without being on the receiving end - after a nursing career spanning over forty years, I miss the buzz of belonging there rather than having to visit because of my illness.
I have been looking forward to this all week, and wouldn't you just know it, I seem to be starting a 'flare' today.
My thumb joints are on fire, and my knees and ankles are swollen.
I have three hours to get a soak in a hot bath and try to limber up a little, 'cos I'm darned if If I'm going to stagger into this event like an old cripple.
Plenty of make up and a gorgeous new kaftan should hide a multitude of sins, so wish me luck for a stylish entry!
Other members of this site are attending too .... I am sure we will all report back later!
Luv to all .... Moffy
