Small quantities of Curvie crisps then Janet?🧀will miss your cheese though. Can you have freefrom cheese spread?
Jaminhealth I have benefitted a good bit from avoiding dairy - I have a lung condition which caused a lot of coughing - much better though not cured now 🙂 I use Naturali vegan 'butter' now it tastes almost as good wazz. Yum!
Stickywicket I think your son is right - I have increased my fluid intake by about 30% not only do i cough less, but crave less snacks too. Except in the evening....can't solve that🤔😁
You do know butter is dairy? It might have to be margarine
Just bought this of Facebook market place..£10..Will paint it cream...
Well you can only try.....are there any half-decent gluten free crisp type snacks you can try?
For me it HAS to be savoury.
Best of luck
I have an update for you all. After moving house we are under the care of a new rheumatologist. Looking at my wife afresh he is working to a new diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis.
To finally have a more ‘mainstream’ diagnosis has been a huge relief to us both. We feel that finally after a long 9 years we will be finally treating the disease properly. Here’s to the future.
Thank you @frogmorton, for your comments. Going vegan is a little too drastic for me and gluten free crackers aren't the nicest alternative BUT maybe an oat-filled snack might tempt me away from cheese. Janet x
Hi I have done the same this year, changed a lot of garden to plants/shrubs that are permanent. I am also looking at changing some of my tools to those with long handles so less bending down...its amazing what you can find on amazon. I have taken over half the shed and now have a potting tray that my my hubby fills will soil and then I can pot up happily without bending. I just need to put some thought into how I do things from now on. Its easy to lose track of time when you are doing something you enjoy.
Hi.i couldn't agree more I understand the economy needs to get back on its feet but it does feel as if Britain has basically said let's let all the vulnerable that can't afford to be locked away take there chances in the workplace!I'm resigned to getting this damn thing now i just hope I'm not one of the unlucky ones.😫🤞
Thank you so much for this week's update it was very very good - Max was great confidant and so articulate what a help that will be to young people.
This Community is wonderful for supporting each other we are so lucky to have the forum. It helped me so much at the beginning of my Arthritis 'journey' and know it is still doing the same for new people now 🙂
