After last weeks visit with the rhuemy consultant and him telling me he can't do anything for the sweats or fatigue and all he can help with is manage the pain,i have decided on a few things.

1, i am not going to look for any answers and miracle cures for what ails me.

2,I am going to stop asking Bob what my eyes looks like and are they any worse than before.

3,i am going to try and be more cheerful and outgoing.

4,I am going to try and stop worrying so much.

I think that is enough to be going on with.xxxx

  • You are so strong - well done

  • Well done Sylvi,

    If you can carry on like that ,good on ya. I normally function on that kind of stance. But just sometimes it just all gets too much , and as I have found this week, I have crumbled ,massively. Sometimes you need someone to wrap you up and tell you that it will all be okay.

    Well done for being so positive.

    By the way love the pic. We brought one of those yesterday at a National Trust place.
