A little update on me

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

I don't really ever go into detail on my blog about my medical condition, but since you all take the time to read my ramblings and always leave great comments etc I thought I would let you know what's going on and how things are.

I have had a 'new pain' for the last few weeks and it just hasn't subsided no matter how many drugs I take, it has been driving me mad to be honest, although my condition has a massive effect on what I can and can't do, I am fiercely independent and hate being like this so to be feeling worse is my worst nightmare. My condition is a degenerative condition so will naturally get worse with time, and being a terminal condition well that doesn't need much explanation really does it?

When I get new pains or feel worse I usually see how I go for a couple of weeks, I mention it to the medical people looking after me but I like to see how things go because sometimes it's just a bad patch, but sometimes it isn't and I'm afraid this is one of those times, when I saw my GP last Friday he told me I have relapsed meaning my condition has worsened, the only real way of telling what is happening inside me is by having surgery but my doctor at the hospice has said no more, the surgery is too much and each time I gain more adhesions and this then makes things worse. But the medical professionals can tell when my condition has got worse using other factors too and this is what has happened.

I have been given some new medication to try three times a day along side all my other medication so fingers crossed there may be some improvement, so far I haven't seen any but I only started the tablets last after seeing my GP. So we'll see what happens there I suppose, and it just means that some of the things I made myself do before the new pain, I now cannot do, but some would argue (Simon) that I shouldn't have been doing those things anyway, but like I said I am independent and like to try if I can, but stupidly I always end up worse off, will I ever learn? I doubt it!!

So that's me, my silly condition has taken a turn for the worse, but hey ho and all that, life goes on and I will get on with it, I am extremely lucky to have the best friends in the world and an amazing family and the support I have from them both physically and emotionally is fantastic. And also a massive thank you to everyone who has emailed me, tweeted me or in boxed me on You tube or Facebook because you have noticed I haven't been myself, it means such a lot to me and I really appreciate it.

Onward and upwards as they say!

Thank you for reading, much love as always
