Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Leaning into those big hugs. Sorry I have been absent. It has been on purpose. Too much physical (off work 2 weeks and doc put me on gabapentin) and emotional pain.
Wallowing in private around the holiday. I was anxious that any posts about Thanksgiving would make me more sad. Homesick to the extreme around this time of year.
Add to that, worrying myself silly about my parents in law here in UK. Mum's dementia getting so bad and poor Dad (in his mid 90's and pretty frail) is sometimes beside himself trying to cope with her. I think he is finally starting to see some sense about either moving with her into assisted living facility or in with his son Chris and me or his daughter and her husband.
I started the monthly Simponi (anti TNF) injections 27 November. Literature says it can take from 4 to 6 months to take effect.
All best to everyone.
