Today marks the day that the amount of tablets I take daily drop from 42 down to 20. Wow wee. Quite a drop huh? I'm on a strict two year programme for treating my illness (rheumatoid arthritis) and we are entering the second phase. My consultant and GP have been wonderful and along with Mr Thrifty have supported me through this hard part of the illness (getting used to the diagnosis, testing how far my body can be pushed and understanding the treatment).
So reaching the second phase of my initial treatment is wonderful, I feel so damn excited. I could dance on the roof if I could be arsed to get up there! The drugs I've stopped taking are the ones that have pumped me up and bloated me up to a stupidly large size, so hopefully with some hard work on my part the weight will slowly come off.
So there we have it, hopefully this really does signal the start of a new me.
The other day I was messing around with my blog and managed to delete my template. Bum.
So I decided out with the old in with the new. Some new features and colours have hopefully cheered the old place up a bit. Don't forget to check out the tabs at the top of the page which will hopefully be filling up with interesting things to read sometime soon.
Pop back tomorrow to hear about the challenge that my friend and I have set each other, you'll be invited to join in too.

P.S. Check out that grey hair of mine. I'm really am only in my twenties!
