The final chapter it seems in my swelling for the last month has ended with me flaring.
I was in flare pain since tuesday at work. Asked to go home, as I had a light timetable as the yr 11's have left and yr 7's where on a residential trip. Cover was tight, so I was unable to go home. Wednesday I woke and my joints were minging to high noon. Still did not realise I was flaring. Just thought I over did it at work and was kicking myself for not insisting I be allowed to go home.
By mid afternoon I had, had enough and rang the hospital. They offered me a steroid injection. But I could not walk, how was I gonna get to the hosptial?
I was unable to go to work today due to the pain I am still in and I hoping that today is the last day of this dreaded flare pain, as its been constant, but not as bad now as wed or thursday.
You forget what flare pain is like because of the drugs where on, then you get miserable and think how much you hate ra and then why you!
I am at the why me stage and am feeling very resentful. I guess that is normal.
looking forward to the half term hols and hoping I will not be sick for all of it and will be able to get out & about some time.
Take care all and enjoy the long wkend break
