update!:)

so the last time i did a blog i was telling you how i was planning on going into hospital to have steroids in my ankles and wrists, well this went ahead. i had them last week and i felt the difference within a few days, they really do work for me! i now have a lot less stiffness in my ankles making every day walking less painful. They couldn't have come at a better time for me as i now only have 17 days left a school and the last thing i need on my mind is the pain..now this is under control for the moment i can focus on getting through my exams and finishing school. im hoping for these steroids will last a good few months as they have done before.

nice feeling to write a positive post!:)

hope everyone else is doing okay..Sophie xx

That is great Sophie but please pace yourself so that you continue to feel the good effects. My middle son is at same stage as you - a few weeks left of school - hope to think he would be as brave as you if he had RA - good luck for those exams! Xx

What a hero! I'm sure other students think they're having a bad time. They can't know what it's like to face exams & RA at the same time. Good luck!
