Hi everyone, I've not blogged for ages but I have been reading how everyone is doing and I'm glad to say that I have had very positive results after 2 cycles of Rituximab. Those that know me from old know that I had tried most things including CIMZIA anti-tnf with no improvement and after 3 years was desperate. I'm hoping that once the steroids have worn off I continue to feel a little better but the relief from continual pain is good. I'm not pain free and still walking with sticks but it's better than I've dared hope for in the past.
My dear daughter Jess has supported me so much and she has coaxed her work mates at NOW magazine, where she is the News Editor, to support NRAS as thier charity this year. Hopefully it will raise awareness in the press which is a really good thing.
Here's what Jess has written on the magazine facebook page...........
Don't laugh! But I'm RUNNING the Royal Parks HALF MARATHON with other members of Now Magazine on October 7. I've not run for 15 years but we're doing it for the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society which really helps my mum and does so much good work.
So please please sponsor me because I want to raise lots of money - then you can all come and laugh at me as I run round! justgiving.com/Now-Magazine
Please sponsor them if you can.
Love Sue x
