I always get a printout of my blood test results, as I like to be informed about my body. Today when I read my printout I was amused to see a note the GP must have written to himself which read "normal for her"!
As my esr rate is pretty high, although it has been higher, and I have the usual slightly anaemic counts, I wondered: am I supposed to accept these levels? My esr rate has never dipped below the rate at diagnosis last year, and the anaemia indicators are creeping up ever so slightly every month. If this is normal for me, why am I taking a toxic drug which wipes me out every weekend?
All these questions, and the constant one: am I making a fuss about nothing?
