I was diagnosed in May with RA which sent me in to a turmoil of emotions and unwell with my body coping with the drugs. This site and the lovely people on here have been amazing, supportive with advice and reading the stories they share how the illness affects them.
I am a puppy walker for Guide Dogs for the Blind and thought my PW days were over so decided to ask for a break after my last puppy went to Fofar. So on Friday I went to puppy class/training to see my friends and have some puppy time and I was asked by my Supervisor if I felt like I was ready for another puppy. So I said YES ..after almost 6 months on MTX and Hydroxychloroquine I am slowly feeling like my old self and have more energy. My bloods keep yo-yoing but on the whole I feel better than I did in January, I am still sore and stiff and get tired but compared to the way I was feeling heaps better.
I also saw that knitting is good for my RA so going to knit some little dogs for our craft fair for GD fundraiser next year.
Thank you again for listening and will let you know the pup's name ..he is arriving in
December Take care and gentle hugs xxxx
Below is my last puppy Freddie
