I'll try to keep this short.
In August I blogged about how I was feeling low and lower still, but I followed the advise of the people on the site, firstly I went to see my doctor about how I was feeling and to say that I was still waiting for my consultant appointment to come through after 4 months.
He was not happy at all that I was not being kept up to date, he said he would email my consultant.
Within a week I had an appointment through, although a month to wait, thats OK.
I went for my appointment and the consultant was not happy that my doctor had emailed her, but, she said she was going to refer me for Humira, WOW! I thought, she said to keep my phone on me for the next couple of weeks as the hospital would ring with an appointment.
A month later I rang the consultants secretary to find out what was happening, she said Im very sorry , but your referal form was kept in your file, I have just sent it off, but keep your phone on as the hospital will ring you with an appointment.
OK I told work, who were not happy now ( as I teach), but allowed me to keep the phone on.
Didn't want to seem pushy, but a month later no phone call. I phoned my doctor about something else and mentioned this to him, he was not happy again, he said leave it with me.
Within a week I had an appointment albeit in a month's time.
Eventually I get to my appointment and the assessment nurse said "You do realise you have to come to see me twice before a decision is made" I said "no, but thats OK"
At the end she said come back and see me in a month or when the next appointment is. OK
I made the appointment 7 weeks to wait then what??
Went for my appointment today and I have been allowed to go on Humira, got to wait til all paperwork has been signed and delivery made (about 4 weeks and for the nurse to come out) BUT eventually I feel so happy and I haven't even started it yet, it was a little long winded process, but got here eventually.
Sorry for boring you all, but considering my last blog, this is a real turn around and I can't wait to get my life back again and be able to dance.
Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement, and hope you have the same happiness come your way.
