better day

hi guys

thanks for all your comments..

am having a much better day today, injection is kicking in and i can almost straighten my elbow yayyyyyy, very sore where injection went in and also quite bruised but hey im up and about today although taking it easy.

been doing a little around the house and that in its self makes me feel better, i do tend to get over excited when the pain eases n i can actually move,

just the little things i used to take for granted ie showering n washing my hair, putting my (flat boots on) as feet do not like anything else ..

its a feeling of being free ( does anyone understand that) its the only way i can describe it..

making a cuppa being able to hold the kettle ( im easily pleased lol) just the normal everyday things

hugs to you all and hoping one day we will all be able to do everything that we used to do xxxx

Good to hear that you are feeling better Ali. Just don't do too much because you can move a bit, ok. You still need to rest to recover.

I have recently upped my dose of leflunomide to 20 mgs instead of 10. It was a week ago and I've been feeling awful ever since. So tired and my head feels like I'm swimming thru mud. Plus joints if anything feel worse. Anyone else have a similar experience?
