I've taken another step downhill, so I am keeping things small and basic.

* make bed, stay on top of dishes, try to get the house a little tidier than it is, 5 minutes gardening, shower and wash hair.
* some exercise, take meds

Bonus points if I do anything that helps me get ahead. These are all optional and I'll be surprised if I do any of them:
* make pureed soup?
* grab a few groceries?
* any extra tidying / cleaning
* write a letter / work on paperwork

Why, if I requalified for Humira weeks ago, am I being left, medless, to go further downhill?? cry

Ivy - why if you qualify for the Humira do you have to wait? I dont understand.
Work has been going ok, my face has healed up nicely and the D has settled down with the help of Imodium.
Hope you hear some better news regarding the Humira soon.

Jo, I don't understand either. I email the city docs every week with my updated symptoms, and there's been no response other than that one email two weeks ago, saying that (they thought) I'd requalified and that they'd get in touch when they had more information. My specialist here knows about the lack of contact, and on Monday said he would write to the city doctors to see what's going on. Grrr. You and I know specialists - they take weeks to write and then read each others' letters.

I have to email another set of results tomorrow, and have been told to ring my specialist here on Friday. If I haven't heard anything from the city docs by then, words will be said. This is ridiculous.

I've made half the bed and done several five-minute dish-washes. Have lots of dishes still to wash, though. That's it so far.

Good luck with finding the crab, Jo. How long can they survive without water? I hope you can find it soon - sounds like you may have an imminent tragedy on your hand.

Glad to hear the face is ok and that the gut is improving. That must make things much easier at work. Glad to know, too, that the Imodium is helping. I'll probably have to start using it soon - at some point I'm going to have to get out of the house to buy some food :-/ - so I'm grateful for the experiences you have shared with me.

Ivy - I get it now, its all the paperwork procrastinators - sheesh just read/sign it already. Very frustrating for you, not to mention detrimental to your health.
Yahoo we found the hermit crab this afternoon, only after I searched the house half the day, it just wandered in the hallway and sat there like it had been there all day - too funny really. Glad I did'nt have to wait for a bad smell to follow - oh dear.
Re the imodium, I only take it every other day and still only one tablet, this seems to work for me, has cut down the bm's to 3-5 a day and the pain has gone, although I am still bloated but I will live with that.
It might be worth a try for you too, just so you are able to get
out and about more.
