I always tell myself, and tell my friends to always keep a smile on your face and be positive no matter what. But this past week has been a real struggle. I have only just managed to carry on at work, but at home I have had to use my stick constantly and taking a mixture of pain killers, long hot baths and icing all of my joints. Pain is crap. Trying to keep focussed on my genetics appointment on friday, which will hopefully give me some answers or ideas on where to go regarding a full diagnosis. Trying to keep positive, but it's so hard when in constant, relentless pain.
