Hi All, trying to deal with the new diagnosis while having constant nagging worry that the lack of any sort of scan means rheumy might be missing something that will deteriorate without the right treatment. Need to see my GP to discuss revised treatment plan but can't see her for three weeks (that's only by going online and booking myself - reception offered four weeks!). So decided to find a corner of my brain to lock it all away in until the GP appointment so I could try not to appear the gibbering wreck I've appeared of late. Thought I was doing well until Wednesday when I had my second OT appointment. Instead of continuing to go through daily activities as I was supposed to I spent the first half back in gibber mode pouring my heart out too the poor little OT. Bless her, she's so sweet and lovely. She told me not to worry, that the hour was my time to spend however was best for me and that there is no limit to how many times I need to go to get everything sorted. If only the rheumy team could operate the same way! I'm sure people would get their diagnosis and treatment plan sorted much sooner and the reduction of stress would be a further bonus. Of well, when I win the lottery I shall be messaging the wonderful earthwitch to get the name of her private consultant On the positive side, I've been given an extremely sexy wrist splint to wear when doing painful tasks. Such a beautiful chewed toffee colour. I believe I may have hinted in the past that I am more than a weeny bit vain so it will come as no surprise to learn that my wrist will need to be in danger of falling off before anyone outside my immediate family will see me wearing it. Hope you all have a lovely relaxing weekend xxx
