Thanks everyone for your supportive messages. It means so much to know that others are going through the same. I have felt dreadful the last few days and thought it was low inr but in fact it's sky high at 4.7 so must be another virus. So have cancelled. yet again, some of my activities and taking it easy and trying not to beat myself up when I do something silly; my body is good at telling me when to slow down. I have a touch of lupus as well and St Thomas' have said I can have periodic steroid injections, so will ask my lovely GP if I can have another one soon because they do make a difference even temporarily.
