    Chapter 2: the book addict rejoins the world

    Time to start a new thread!

    My ankles are stiff, have been since I woke up, same with my elbows. They weren't an issue when I was 4 stone heavier so it's something I need to mention to my rheumatologist at my next appointment. It's annoying how tired I am after a quick trip to town but I do feel a sense of achievement

    Woohoo! New shiny thread!
    When's your appointment with your rheumy?
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Not actually got one sent through yet!!! I should be due one as she said 8 months, but I'm not flaring, just achey and stiff so I can wait as others need the appointments more.

    It's not helping but the main issue is my immune system isn't dampened down enough. At my last bloods the nurse told me my inflammation markers are up and down, meaning I still have active disease.

    You are just as important. Youre in active disease, which, as I understand it, can lead to irreversible damage. Please push for an appointment.......
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I don't feel like I am. I feel like me having a tough day doesn't matter as it always feels like my mums health issues are what's important.

    Anyway, sorted these today...

    Those are fab... But I agree, if you are in active disease then you deserve to be seen... You are important. Please give them a call tomorrow....

    I will see how I am tomorrow. It's possibly because it's been cold and damp today.

    Please ring regardless. Most days you are in significant pain (enough for you to change the way you live your life because of it). That is a significant disability and needs to be dealt with. You need help
