Hi, Thanks for viewing my blog. It lets me have a rant and I may even help someone along the way. Got the idea to do a blog following using an Arthritis Forum for the first time at

I suffer from Psoriatic Arthritis which is very demanding in all aspects of my life and this is my story on how I deal with it on a day to day basis.

I have been spending lots of time recently researching arthritis and pregnancy, there isnt loads of information out there and the most helpful thing i have found to date is forums and hearing other peoples story. This just confirms to me why I am 'blogging', if someone like me wants to know they are not on their own.

The Waiting Game

In life you seem have to wait for everything. As a child it was always the long wait for birthdays and Christmas; the things which are easier to wait for as you get older.

I was expecting a huge wait for my EEG appointment following seeing the Neurologist; shockingly it is the 24th February - only 25 days after my appointment. I've had one before so nothing to worry about and at least then they will be able to corroborate that there is a brain in there....somewhere!

Using the ovulation kit this month to check; firstly if I am ovulating and secondly when in my cycle it is happening. All the peeing on sticks waiting for what you want to see so that you know you have a chance to get pregnant; and then the day you get the smiley face to confirm ovulation really does make the wait worthwhile. Yes I have definitely ovulated this month so now another waiting game to see if it has been a successful month; fingers crossed! and toes and everything else!

A big step today was going back to work, I only worked 4 hours to ease me back into it. Minus the annoyance of problems logging on to my systems after having access revoked I rather enjoyed it. I was most anxious about walking in the snow. I struggle walking at the best of times, but me and snow/ice do not mix well - its not happy with just seeing the souls of my feet; it needs to see my bum and/or y face too! All in all a good day - exhausted now and painful back but a restful afternoon and early night in readiness for day 2.
