This has to be the most depressing clinic anywhere! Small dingy space with very uncomfortable seating, not suitable for people suffering with joint pain.
I was told at my last visit that I needed to give my current treatment 3 more months and if it still wasn't helping then it would be changed to something else. The last 3 months have been hell! So I was really hoping for some help today.
However I was told at today's visit that I must have more ultrasounds images done, which will take 2-3 months and so carry on with the current treatment (that's not working) and come back in 4 months!
Maybe I am bit slow to catch on, I am just being to see that I am on my own with this, and I can expect little support from outpatients.
I certainly won't be holding my breath anyway, it looks like I shall have lost my job before I ever get any help anyway
