a big thank you

some time ago i posted on the site asking for advice after feeling unhappy with my consultants response. I got lots of really good advice and went back feeling empowered to argue my case. well it turned out to be unnecessary as my disease score had rocketed so he already agreed with my view that i wasnt in remission as he had previously stated and i start on an anti-tnf as soon as all the tests are done.

i just wanted to say thank you for the advice and support and let you know the sense of validation i felt really helped me through. if i can share one thing i learned from this experience, its have faith in yourself - you are the expert on your own experience.
