It looks lush :) and I blame me too for Minty getting a puppy lol. Wrinkles is gorgeous! Haha, that made me laugh, chewed up hearing aids. Yes, alot of dogs like peeing on bags! My hand is aching tonight. Was reading you had similar. Any better?

Yes I've read it goes with RA at ladies of a certain age think mtx helped but had to stop it just see what happens

Wishing you all the best for 10th. Hugs

Aw thankyou it's been a long wait

I was diagnosed with PMR ten years before I was diagnosed with RA. I can definitely tell the difference as the PMR mostly affects my shoulders, neck and hips and it may or may not flare the same time as the RA. I am also hypothyroid and when I finally got that dosage correct it really helped a lot with my energy.

Best of luck with your upcoming appointment 😊
