Thank you to all of you that have helped me through my difficult moments and given me valuable advice to help me move forward.

  • What a lovely post , and I was wondering how you are this week. Did u get some sick time from work and how is the fatigue now ?

  • Hi there, yes I have taken some time out and it is helping with both the fatigue and the inflammation. Just worried now though about going back and getting worse again. Feeling stronger though and ready to carry on with the battle!!! xx

  • Ye, are u due another medication increase this week or are u on top dose now? I did also try to go back to work but found it hard and then went to my gp who gave me a longer spell off which helped. Also I got a steroid injection to help as suggested by the doctors which lowered my inflammation and pain whilst I waited on the dmards to kick in. So I hope you get dome more help from the docs soon, my Rheumy helpline was also brilliant.

    How are your beautiful children , hope they are all well, it's such a lovely picture.

  • See my consultant this week which makes me feel better.
