An Insight Into My Week

Last Friday I had my regular check up appointment with the rheumatologist, the consultant is a nice lady who I've seen for the last few years, her kind & caring manner always puts me at ease. She told me once again that treatment is minimal for those with my conditions & I left feeling downhearted at the thought of living with these issues for the rest of my life as they continue to worsen.

But now I have to tell people she's called after Fergie from Black Eyed Peas. Haha. Believe it or not, I actually made the same mistake with Holly, I called her Olly because I thought she was a male, until a breeder corrected me. Obviously I then changed her name to Holly. Bot
