I'm currently between drugs so on a course of Prednisolone. I'm feeling so good! We went for a long walk up on the moors today, I'm not sure of the distance but it took more than four hours to complete the circuit. I can so rarely get to go on nice long walks these days but the pain was forgotten and it was amazing, first of all it was so foggy we almost got lost. The dried grass heads were coated in pretty feathery layers of ice and the puddles and mud were icy. Eventually the sun came out and lit up all the beautiful subtle colours of bracken and heather and grass. I feel pumped full of good clean oxygen.
I was worried the osteo-arthritis in parts of my feet might play up but I wore good walking boots with my special supportive soles and a good pair of supportive walking socks and my feet were fine. Only my knees gave out a bit at the end on some of the downhill bits.
I'm seeing the nurse tomorrow to start me on the way to taking anti-tnfs (not sure whether I am actually starting them or just having a big info/training session). I hope they help me feel as well as being on the steroids.
We are moving house in three weeks too, I was dreading how I would cope but this short steroid course will help me get through that too, good timing!
