Oh Becky, sorry to hear how you feel today - do you think it's something in the air - i feel so tired today, not in pain but everything aches, even my eye lids..

The effort it takes to do the shopping is so trying - I do my big shop on line most of the time, it saves the stress, the carrying and more often than not saves me money as I try really hard to plan in advance for meals, again reducing the stress a bit - every little counts.

Had to push myself today as had to have head CT for GCA (Giant Cell Artiritis), which is not resolving. Probably me being over cautious/sensitive, but they asked after the scan if I had a follow up booked soon?? I have, it's Friday, but then sensible head thinks of it is anything significant I will know before then. Anyway enough of my moans.

Try to get some rest, wheat bags on the bad pains, cup of tea, tv or music and time just for you, if you can - hope tomorrow is better and you get a good nights sleep.

If there was something drastic on the screen you would not have been let home! It happened to my daughter a fair few years ago, went for a 'normal' scan, then next minute all hell broke loose and was having emergency surgery one of her fallopian tubes had burst.

Wish you luck for Friday.x


Hi there Beth

I empathize with you. It is a horrible disease. You tried having a nice bath before kids come from school. That some times helps me.

I am having a rotten day myself, but I'll be stuffed if this disease is gonna beat me.

Just been told I need to go to hospital to have my stomach examined with a scope. They think I have an ulcer now with the medication. So all my RA medication has been stopped again. Stopped it on Friday last week. So no relief over the weekend. How do they expect us to cope.

Thinking of you, sending you I hug.




My brain is numb Becky..... sorry wrote Beth :-(

Hi Becky

do the shopping on line for homne delivery. All the major supermarkets offer this service. You can do it across the week - little at a time and add to the order as when you feel like up to about 12am of the day of delivery. I've taught my hubby to do it, and now it does all the food shopping on line for delivery saturday morning normally.

You should start to feel better once you start on a dmard, so hang in there!

Take care
