Well just for me at least! Barring any further disasters my Enbrel will be delivered tomorrow :D:D:D I'm not sure where the blame for the delay is but that delay is no more - it's arriving on a sleigh (or the back of a white van) tomorrow. Here's hoping it works and works fast. I think I'm in shock and may be shedding a wee tear.
Hey little fighter, things will get brighter

    We wish you a Merry Christmas...... :D

    Great news, LV. My fingers are crossed and my breath bated. Maybe not instant success (unlike tripe) but nicely in time for improvement before the other Christmas.

    That's great news. I don't know much about this treatment but do hope it helps.

    Thank you both. It arrived, I took it and am now as flexible as a 16 year old Olympic gymnast :lol: not really but no adverse reactions so that's a good start!

    Hello LV, how are things going now? Please remember to get your bloods done regularly, many moons ago I felt fine but my bloods showed that something was going horribly wrong so be conscientious about them, they are a necessary interruption. DD

    Hi DD, I swear you read my mind this morning - I seem a little less inflamed in places and I was wondering if it was just a good day, whether it was a placebo moment or whether there was a small improvement. I figured the only way to know was to have a blood test the week after next! That would be on time for my meth blood schedule which I rarely am normally. My back is horribly stiff but I'm working hard at my exercises to get it unstiff, no real progress but I think pram pushing makes it worse and that's unavoidable really. I do have a really dry mouth and eyes - a side effect maybe but not the end of the world! Thanks for confirming my thoughts DD!

    I hope its a small improvement but, yes, bloods are a good idea. Pram-pushing will be hard on the back with two growing toddlers. My pram-pushing days were when I almost invented the motorised pram :wink:

    Hope the small improvement grows into a bigger one, LV.
