Well I finally feel better!!! Flare up day 4 with the PMR. Managing that with Pred. Last Friday I had horrible thoughts of living in pain and being totally dependent on others is not a life. Today I have almost achieved pain free and massively improved mobility. I can do the Physio exercises, walk like a human, get up stairs have a shower and not want to collapse in a heap afterwards. My Mam used to say "Patience is a virtue keep it if you can found seldom in a woman never in a man". Tomorrow will be better. Thanks for all of you who supported me through this. Onward and Upward.
