OMG! I thought I had it tough! Sounds like you've had a hell of a time too! This board has been really good for keeping me informed about things - really helps for even going to see the GP!
7 of you - my god, I'm struggling with the five of us! My fiance (we're tying the knot in April!) wants another one, but I've said we have to wait to see what the rheumy says first.
And we're waiting for a result on DLA - they're getting a report from the physio at the mo. It's really nerve-wracking though, because getting it will mean so much for us.
But it's great to find this board, and a local too! We may well bump into each other some time! :) I think most of my treatment will be at the DGH.
Thanks for the welcome though - and I look forward to posting and more reading!
Take care luvvy
