Life is swings and rounadabouts!

Hi all

Was feeling bit low as they are undergoing a reorganisation at work and found out my post has been deleted, so facing redundancy on 1st May. Got to find another job. They have said I can apply for any other jobs that may become vacant as a 'redeployee'. My partner has also been pretty unwell with his colitis and I have been worried for him.

However got some really good news when went to hospital, my platelets are now normal and although white cells and red blood cells normal they have lowered a little. Anyway my hydroxy has been reduced and I now only have to take 500mg Monday & Friday and feeling pretty well. Paul is feeling better too!

Isn't life funny. It's definately swings and roundabouts. Something may knock you down but there's always something that comes along to cheer you up. So I am thinking now there's another better job around the corner and a change is as good as a rest.

I wish you all the best. Bittersweet. Life gives us lots of trials but we are stronger than we think. If possible a little time in between jobs would be very healing. Physically and mentally. Well wishes and happy valentine's day.
