I go back to the Rheumatology department of the hospital tomorrow for my first check-up to see how things are going since I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis in May.
The list of things I can do now that I couldn't do in May is endless. Or rather, I could do them but not without pain.
I can reach up into the wall cupboards in the kitchen for the mugs, coffee and biscuits without climbing on a stool.
I can fasten my bra!
I can put my socks on.
I can knit.
I can drive my car. (I could always do this but, if I sat for too long, getting out of said car was a problem.)
I can sit and stand and sit and stand all night long at Singers' rehearsals without groaning!
I can get in and out of the bath when I have a shower. (I decided not to risk having baths as last time I had one, I nearly got permanently stuck in there! :oO)
There are more but that'll do for now.
Add into all that the fact that I go swimming 3 times a week and that I've lost 3" on my trouser size, I'm sure the doctor will be pleased with me. Go me! :o)
