Hi all

I am now back after a break - I have been busy with my study and looking for a new job.

My caudal epidural went really well and I have been able to go swimming at least three times a week - losing about a stone in weight in three weeks. My thyroid tablets are finally working and with being able to do more exercise I am getting fitter.

I am still suffering a bit with the pain and I have had some extra pain in the shoulder but it is manageable at the moment.

I am going for a second interview on Thursday at 9am and I have a good feeling about this.

I hope that everyone else is well and is coping as much as they can with their situations. Look after yourselves and I will be back to talk to you all really soon

Jaki

    I have just found out that I didnt get the job that I was hopeful about.

    I have however been approached about another job and I am hoping that something comes of it but I am not getting my hopes up just yet about it.

    I will keep you informed about my job prospects.

    Have been a bit rough but I think I am coming out of the other side. Things on my right side seem to be falling apart and I can only walk in circles but hopefully physio will be more helpful when I eventually go in the morning

    Thanks guys.

    I have been for physio and as is normal I have been poked and prodded. I have signed up for Aqua aerobics as instructed by my physio.

    Today things feel like I have really been battered so I am going to have an early night tonight.

    Have just had a phone call and heard that I have got an interview on Wednesday so it is fingers crossed that this goes ok.

    Hi All

    Thanks for all your wishes.

    The interview went ok, and although I have knowledge of the job and have dealt with similar things before, I am not sure how the interview went. It was one of the interviews that you come out feeling no idea of how things went.

    They told me that they had more people to interview and that I would be informed later this week of their decision.

    I am really not sure what they thought of me but I did tell them that I had OA of the spine and how I would need to act during the day. I am not sure how they took it but they did thank me for telling them. Hopefully something good will happen but I am not holding out too much hope. I have been shot down too many times recently when I have applied for jobs.

    Hi Jaki,
    Got everything crossed for you, hope you get the news you want to hear soon :grin:
    Good luck with water aerobics, I used to do it years ago and loved it, no chance I could do it now not with PA playing boomerang with my joints :lol: but maybe later in the year if the new meds start to work...
    Good luck anyway for everything Jaki, thinking of you xxx
