Today I am going a little off topic...
I have ulcerative colitis, it has been in remission for two and a half years. I had to stop my drug therapy (an IV drug that suppresses the immune system) in order to have baby no.2, and also to assess my ability to maintain remission on my own, without being dependent on medication.
It turns out my body is as useless as it always has been and is unable to function on its own without drugs being pumped through my veins on a regular basis. The UC has returned and I have been unable to make it to work for a week and a half. I have been working from home but this morning I finally had to admit that I need some time out to rest and recuperate whilst I decide what course of action to take.
So here I am sat on the sofa, uncomfortable and in pain, six months pregnant and worried about the future. A little light crochet to soothe the mind, a cup of tea and a slice of homemade banana cake to soothe the nerves. Wondering what to do next.
