Tuesday, November 28, 2006


Couldn't think of a sensible blog title so Stuff it is.

What's been going on? Well My Skin is doing fantasticly on the Anti-TNF treatment (TNF is Tumour Necrosis Factor) called Etanercept. I am now 95% clear of Psoriaisis and it's bloody brilliant.

I'm signed off work again atm, I got myself a sinus infection last week and my Arthritis flared, so 2 weeks off for me. Glad to say the antibiotics have worked and I can breathe again, shame about my joints being on fire.

Went to the Rheumatologist yesterday, who is upping my Painkillers a level, I was Just taking Ibuprofen 6 months ago, 6 weeks ago I moved onto Naproxen, now I am to go on the the 3rd tier anti-inflamatory drugs, with a long medical sounding name I can't remember, i'll post it when i get the letter from him. I know it begins with M....

He also refered me to a hospital in Bristol for Hydrotherapy and physiotherapy, which I am told is quite energetic and exhausting....still it'll get me fit too and hopefully i'll lose a bit of weight. He also encouraged me to cycle more, so this morning I dutifully put on my Helmet and cycled Mstr.A to school, got him ther no probs, but as i went to push off for home my chain snapped, leaving me in a heap on the floor and with a very painful knee. So then a 1 mile walk home without a walking stick....deep joy. I'm now sat at home in pain waiting for the large dose of Codeine (Tylex) to kick in.

Mustn't grumble....I could be at work
