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
