So after feeling like my appointments with my consultant were not being that productive I decided to list everything I wanted to know and had 11 subjects I wanted to cover. Did think this may be difficult to achieve in the 15 minute appointment window I had.
We discussed this and decided this would be the next approach for my treatment. I was given a pile of blood and nuclear forms for various blood samples that were needed and a chest x-ray as well.
I found myself getting into a vicious circle of needing to exercise however found myself being to tired to do this and needed to kick myself out of this cycle so also started to research alternative therapy exercises and was careful not to just ask the question of 'shall I try alternative therapies?' as the response would have just been 'Yes'
I would definitely recommend thinking about how to phrase questions beforehand to ensure that you do not just receive a Yes or No answer from your consultant and take in that bit of paper you wrote them on...
So very soon I will begin my fortnightly injections which I'm slightly apprehensive about however feel this is a positive decision in which hopefully I will see an improvement after the subsequent weeks of having these.
For the past few weeks I've been trying a beginners Qi-gong class which concentrates on energies around the body and movement. Already I am starting to feel good from going to these sessions and even better the movements shown are something I can easily replicate at home or work.
After a bit of a blip earlier this year I'm starting to feel I'm managing this condition again however there is still lots more to do with it, one great factor is my other half. She provides me with such fantastic support which helps greatly in managing this condition.
Thank you for reading.
