Hi, Thanks for viewing my blog. It lets me have a rant and I may even help someone along the way. Got the idea to do a blog following using an Arthritis Forum for the first time at

I suffer from Psoriatic Arthritis which is very demanding in all aspects of my life and this is my story on how I deal with it on a day to day basis.

I have been spending lots of time recently researching arthritis and pregnancy, there isnt loads of information out there and the most helpful thing i have found to date is forums and hearing other peoples story. This just confirms to me why I am 'blogging', if someone like me wants to know they are not on their own.

Getting Back to Normal

Firstly let me apologise for neglecting my blog for the last 2 weeks. I have been putting all my efforts into getting back to normal, starting back at work and trying to do a bit at home too; whilst dealing with the arthritis being up and down and not knowing what I will wake up feeling like; as well as navigating the snow to get to work. I am glad that it eventually disappeared.

So 3rd week back at work and been easing into it but worked a full day today; I love being back but I'm not going to lie - its hard! Its exhausting!

It was hubby's birthday Saturday and at 00:02 (yes 2 minutes into his birthday) he had a bit of a mid-life breakdown, I was only teasing - come on he's only 27. I'm 26 this year but what does age matter, I'm like a 80 year old most the time. Not this weekend though, I pulled myself through so that he could have a normal birthday and let my hair down with a couple of drinks, which turned into a couple too many. But it was awesome to actually feel like 26 for once and be a little reckless, definitely what I needed after getting a negative pregnancy test that morning. It was an awesome night and apart from the increased aches and pains, I felt fine Sunday morning. This was definitely a good thing as we were having a family party, 14 of us, 7 of which kids and I had to sort all the food. It was a lovely day, probably a bit noisy if you are suffering with a hangover but you will have to ask hubby that.

So I am gradually getting back into a routine and feeling good for it. I have my EEG this Friday and its still early days on the baby front, so got plenty of time to wait for it to happen.
