I thought i would stop by to just say hi!
I have now had two lots of my Cimzia, I didn't cry so much this time, I can't say I have noticed any real improvement, I am still swollen, tender and still in pain - but I do feel a bit better in myself, its as if I am beginning to come to terms with this thing!
Work is still terrible, my union rep has been brilliant, and has given me hope. I really dont know how colleagues can just completely ignore me, sit with their back turned towards me and make me feel like a leaper!
I have come to the conclusion that their ignorance is down to the fact that they just dont want to understand. The teaching staff have been wonderful, very supportive and pop by just to give me a friendly smile and a reassuring hug, it hasn't stopped me feeling lonely, but it has given me strength to know that I am going to be ok, and that in time my RA will get under control and maybe, just maybe - I will get a bit of my life back!
Im off to see my consultant on Thursday, I have a few questions to ask him, and I will have my bloods done tomorrow - I am looking forward to seeing the results!
Anyway - I do hope that you are all getting on well, as painfree as you can be and ready for the festive season!
Take care peeps,
