PA is for life

I have PA and have been SI for over a year now, religiously sticking to a once/week schedule. Slept 10+ hours last night but it was a struggle just to get off the couch today. I couldn't figure out what was wrong and suspected I was getting sick. Then I realized I forgot my weekly injection, which was due 2 days ago. Just a reminder that PA is for life! On the one hand, it's too bad we have to deal with this forever, but on the other, thank goodness there's an easy solution.

As a side note, I had to self-diagnose and self-treat, so please, take your health into your own hands. You know your body best!

Yes, thaks for your reminder to us . Also we have no idea how lucky we are to have this forum . So lucky to have computers etc to be able to find out about P.A. and how to get round the ignorance of doctors . Also, what would have happened to us only 100 years ago? That’s a frightening thought !
