Time really does fly.... thats us nearly half way through February already! I honestly do think, the older we get the quicker time goes and I do wonder if I really appreciate my life enough. I remember my Dad saying a few years back, that although he was 75, in his mind he felt in his 20s-30s, but his damn body was the thing letting him down.
Maybe that is why I was given this crappy disease to try and make me appreciate life to the full instead of squandering it away. In times of remission (even if short) I certainly do appreciate being able to go places and not having to panic too much if I can't see a toilet straight away. That doesn't mean I don't find out where the toilets are...just in case!
I also wish I could make travel plans for the future without first panicking over whether I'll be ok to do a plane ride or not. I want to go back to Canada skiing again next winter and I'd love to spend some time in New York, all I need is the courage to book the flights and accommodation.
I'm getting there though. If I can just keep this UC at bay for most of the time I might just make that trip next year!
I don't think I've mentioned this before, but I'm going to see a guy in Brisbane called Dr Greg Emerson - http://www.drgregemerson.com/ - he's quite famous in his field apparently. His waiting list is 7 months long, so I'm hoping for a cancellation by Easter. If any of you have heard about him, please let me know either way as he's very expensive and I hate to be wasting money on a lost cause.
