Smiling is what I've done since 1.30pm today, when I came home from errands and opened my post. Some of you know I'm waiting on another infusion, with a stronger drug. I thought it would be months, what with the refurbishment of the clinic.
It turns out I'll be having it in 2 weeks! I checked at least 3 times that it said 1st February. I'm over the moon. As a much stronger drug, I think there's more probability of it actually helping me. The side effects aren't all that pleasant - if I get them -, but if it means having a bit of horridness to have lots of yayness, then sign me up!
I might post up which drug it is after I've had it. I'm just a bit wary because I know people can have strong opinions/concerns about high-end drugs. I'm more of a 'if it helps me, side/long term effects don't matter'. With long term illness, you get to a point where you are happy to try anything. I passed that point many moons ago.
Equally I know it might not work - I've had that happen once already, so it's nothing new. I just hate all the months of waiting that's been going on. Waiting a few weeks is so very squeesome.
I promise to post how it goes, once I'm back in the land of lucidity. It'll probably be a tweet once I get home, and a post at the weekend.
Roll on February!!!
Sleep experiment update: so far, so good. Went to sleep after 11pm (after 11, I was finishing off a chapter), woke around 5.45am. Here's to another night of sleep.
