Hello all :)

Hey everyone how we all doing? Thinking of everyone, a lot has been happening since i last posted here.

About to start injectible mtx, not sure how i feel about it, but i am looking at it this way,its either do it, or my mobility is knackered, so take the mtx, still waiting for rhumy to write up prescitpiton and its been over two months, another phone call on that me thinks next week.

Got through the dreaded ESA assessments, the stress was so much ended up on morphine, but, the good news was i got the support group for 18 months, so that was something for a bit.

Have been trying to keep going, i do that by helping others, so busy campaiging, and as slyvi will tell you ended up on bbc news, thats been happening a lot lately, been on bbc london, channel 4, 5, and bbc 1 and radio 4, is knackering all this interviewing, and back to the houses of parliament again last week, Next week, the NHS. Am trying to pace myself, though, its do one thing one day, then rest, then do , then rest. Its learning the hard way.

Been busy writing, its still happening, have written a lot about RA lately and pain, etc, and I have some news for all of you at last. Finally after these many months. Yes, I really do hate yo-yo's living with the mood swings of cyclothymia and Rhuematoid Arthritis RA is finally coming out at last. It will be an e book at first, and a downloadable pdf and will avaiable via chipmunka publishing and on amazon. SO I wnated to share that with you, I am sorry i havent been aaround as much as i wanted to be , its been a crazy seven months for me, and so much to be done and still do.

This is my latest poem for you. Its called autumn.


I love the colour of the leaves

As they change on the trees

The reds, organges and the yellows

Rustic colours that look so mellow

They float around on the breeze

It is so colourful, a sight to see

The crispness of a blue autumn sky

The smell of a bonfire wafting by

The geese flying south to find some sun

The children scuffling in the leaves having fun

School supplies stocked up in the shops

Parents panicking buying a lot

The autumn wind and rain turns the trees bare

Then it's digging warmer clothes out to wear

Snuggling under a blanket or two

Enjoying a frothy hot chocolate with you

Drawing the curtains and turning on the lights

Just snuggling down and staying warm at night

Watching a programme on tv

That sums up autumn nights to me

Wrapping up and going outside

The smells and colours of autumn collide

A glowing face from a crisp cold day

So many memories to store away

I love the colours of the leaves

As they change on the trees

A beautiful sight, i think you'll agree

It's something i love to see.

Autumn is here again.
