like most of you, I've had to pace myself - well trying my best as I have had a full, but enjoyable & tiring christmas. When I have over done it, I have had to rest the next day as is customary your joints complain. On top of it, I have to still put up with the mtx tablets and nausea etc they bring, despite taking increased folic acid, I am still experiening the unsettling of stomach, queeziness, but at least the diarrheoa has stopped.
At present I am trying to rest as today is mtx and I have now taken all 6 tablets and already I can feel my stomach starting (just need to hold on until tomorrow when, I can take the first of my folic acid).
Did really well in regards to pressies got lots of useful presents from family and hubby indulged my pre christmas spending & sales, so I am really happy about that.
Just got one more lot of entertaining to get through. Have a friend staying over for the new year celebrations. Bought lantern to release this year, so kids are looking forward to that. Eldest is going to Camden to see fireworks with friends. A little worried that he will not make it back home tomorrow night as its a long way back to Essex, but he is growing up so most remember not to be over protective.
Made the decision to stay at home this year for family hols as my disease is not yet fully managed. To this end booked a wk in devon in August for the family - felt guilty as since being diagnosed, we've not been any where, as I have been to ill.
Just wanted to say have a good new year celebration.
Take care, c u in 2012
