I had my rheumatology appointment yesterday and it was mixed. I have had it confirmed that I have psoriatic arthritis as opposed to rheumatoid. They are very similar, but psoriatic can also affect your spine. Unfortunately, it seems it may be already affecting mine (this usually occurs later with the disease). Now this poses an issue, as the initial drugs that the NHS prescribes are not effective at treating this level of inflammation. There are alternate drugs, biologics which are injectable, however you have to “tick boxes” and be approved for these due to their expense. So I have an MRI scheduled for 4-6 weeks time. If it confirms inflammation on my spine, which is likely, then I will be immediately eligible for the biologics, these are a stronger drug and are self-injected every two weeks. So we are back to the waiting game ✌🏼
Headed out of town to celebrate my amazing friend @revelandkeep - and it snowed! Seriously?! But what I can tell you - the PSA stayed at bay for a few days and I got to enjoy the time with the ladies! Although - now it’s Monday - And I’ve spent the last 36 hours in bed 🛌 oh fatigue ... you are a bitch! But Id pay the price every single time to spend time with the ladies! Xo Ladies!
On Saturday we did chores, I put in a few hours of work and we went to the yummy dumpling place! Twice I threw on clothes to run and then it would begin to pour. Ugh! My step count was something in the 200’s, yikes! I know that contributes to my mental health.
So Sunday evening I saw a break in the rain and threw on my fav headphones to listen to the recording of my friend speaking that morning. And..my headphones said, please charge. 😣 So I walked, phone on speaker and high volume, cleared my head and mind for the week and filled it up, petted the goats again, and ran my hill twice. It was freezing, my hands were numb when I started, but I have learned over the last two years what my body and mind needs to stay aligned. Last night I charged those darn headphones so I’m ready for today. 👏🏻 What was your movement/self care win for the day? 💪🏻 Also that hill : 27/100
