Not having a good time

I didn't really want my blog to become negative but just wanted to say things are not so good at the moment so I may be a little quiet on the blogging front.

My health is not good, various things but mainly the MS is affecting my legs. My right hand has been bad for a while but I can manage with it but my legs are a different matter so am on a high dose of steroids for 5 days. They make me quite dizzy and leave me feeling even more drained than usual. Today is only day two so I thought I'd just post up before I end up in bed straight from work each night. I'm hoping not to take time off as I will have completed the course by Sunday so will only have the coming off symptoms next week.

I'm hoping to be able to still stitch (but the dizziness does make the holes move around LOL) so I may have some finishes to show next week.

Take care everyone - be back soon

Clare love (((((hugs))))) I do know what you mean I have to do the steroid thing too (I'm trying to wean at the moment) my immunosupressants where doubled and I had to take antibiotics again so I was quite ill Friday to Tuesday , luckily the side effects have worn off a bit now.
I know it's frustrating but gently does it - this too will pass !!!
If you want , email me and I'll send my phone number so you can text me when you're feeling down - it may help
