Hi Gill,
How come you ended up in hospital?
I didn’t know you could be hospitalised because of P. I’m extra concerned now as I’m often in and out of hospital. I don’t want to spend more time in there.
How are you and what treatment are they giving you?
You poor thing.

I’m so sorry to hear that Gill. You must be fed up. It’s bad enough being so sore in your own bed, let alone a hospital bed.
I’ve been started on an immunosuppressive and I’m worried that I’ll have problems, especially the risk of infection. Some areas have been infected already, but cleared up with antibiotics and antifungals.
Do you know how much longer you’ll be kept in?
Sending you a very gentle hug, to show support and solidarity x

Ohh Gill, I hope you can get relief soon! Do the tablets take a bit to kick in? I am glad your being take of. Have they mentioned biologics to you at all?

Ah Gill good to hear from you, but not good to hear what you're having to go through! That is a long time to be hospitalised. But I guess you are needing to be there... Sounds so painful for you. Have your tablets started to kick in at all yet or are you still waiting for effects? Keep us posted!

Still waiting but increased them to 25mg from 10mg so fingers crossed

Oh dear Gill. I'm so sorry you are struggling. I really hope they can get things under control. Being so sick with psoriasis really sucks. Wish there was a quick fix for you. I have you in my prayers.
