 Feeling confused by some of my posts and what's actually going on? Me tooπŸ™ˆ To be honest half of the time I have no idea what's actually going on or happening - life is very much a case of learning as I go along at the moment and I've got used to rolling with the waves of whatever occurs with my health. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈI can however share a few things th...

Positive for how long?

 I want to remain as positive as possible, but I'm not sure how much longer we can go on like this. Hanging on from one emergency infusion to another. They used to be 1x bag a month- now it's 4x bags a week because I've declined so fast.This is still safer than being admitted to hospital as an inpatient, but when fatality by covid is worst cas...

It's been a quiet couple of days as we don't see the doctors over the weekend unless there's an emergency.
