Just a quick note to update you all:-
Well I got signed of, after doing the injection infront of the nurse again. Got given spill kit, sharps box and 5 wks supply of mtx and sterile packs.
I plan to do it at night from now on. Still affected by extreme fatigue, but now its confined to the first 24 hrs after the initial injection plus I also get a slight accompanying headache about 2 hrs after. I figured that most of this would not be experienced if, I took it before I went to bed and slept through most of it.
It appears that you don't have to pay for mtx injections although I now have a prescription card. The down side is I have to collect the mtx from the hospital. I don't understand why I cannot get my doc to order it and get it delivered to me via the local chemist? How do the rest of you get yours?
Got turned down for the DLA, yesterday. I think I am gonna appeal.
Had a horrible blood nurse and for the first time, taking blood really hurt. She was rough and now I have a prized F**k OFF brusie to prove it. Being a black women you know she must of been rough as I don't bruise easily!!! It hurt all yesterday evening until I eventually fell asleep last nite. Thankfully I am not in pain today.
Busy washing as you all know I am back at work on monday. Really dreading it with all those meets.
Enjoy a pain free wkend
