hi every body sorry i havent blogged for a while but i havent

been to good so i throught i would keep you up to date with

whats been going on, addenbrookes changed my meds six

months ago and after three weeks i felt like shit, so they brought

my next appointment forward six months till last monday so i went

for a load of tests and its not good news the disease has spread

rapidly in the last six months its now starting to affect my left side

as well, my speech and balance are worse resulting in 4 or 5 fulls

Hi Ray. Sorry to hear you have not been feeling good. It was good to see u at the last Brentwood PSP meeting and having a chat. Don't forget that like Trevor there r good and not so good times but u must not give up! It is hard but we must not give in to the condition! Your mood is very important in fighting the condition. Trevor was diagnosed 8 years ago and we have found that keeping our peckers up does make a difference. U have always been encouraging and this has been very helpful. Please look after yourself and keep blogging. Kind regards. Denise

no way this thing will get the better of me im not one to give

up with out a bloody good fight, take care denise and give

my regards to trevor,

Hi Ray

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get good news at your hospital appointment. You sound like a fighter and a very positive person.

I send you my very best wishes and hope you manage to remain strong.

hi jo,

thanks for your kind words and yes i am a fighter

and normaly a very positive person but every one gets

bad days but im buggered if this bloody disease is going

to beat me,

Hi Ray. Sorry to hear you're feeling frustrated with the medics, I sometimes think they are only one step ahead of us on this disease. But you always come across as a very positive person and I hope this will see you through this disappointing time. Your other friends are right, there are some good days round the corner and you'll make the most of them for sure.

Take care

Hi Ray

How are you feeling now? I sometimes think that PSP and CBD patients are treated a bit like guinea pigs by the doctors as they dont know enough about the illness. I Look forward to seeing you at the next Brentwood meeting and an update of how things are progressing. Keep your chin up Ray.

Take Care
