…It will have been 4 weeks tomorrow since I took my last Methotrexate tablet for my Psoriasis.

I’ve gone from 98% clear “normal” skin to what’s below in just 4 weeks…


Just 4 weeks for it to start covering me again. I started taking the tablets last September. They gave me headaches, Made me want to throw up at least once a week and sometimes for days at a time, Made me so tired that I wanted to permanently sleep, But they cleared my skin. What I had been wanting since I was 14.

How quickly I’d forgotten the Pain & soreness that I put up with 24/7, The constant itching and scratching, The never ending hassle of applying various creams and moisturisers. But now it’s back, New red spots appearing almost daily, back to covering up again even when it’s hot & sunny, Back to having people stare at my arms, Seeing in their face that they either are dying to ask me what it is, but won’t, Or thinking they should get away as quickly as possible and avoid me as I may be contagious….and my Specialist wonders why it gets me down and why I have so much trouble making friends/Talking to strangers!!

For all the side effects those tablets brought upon me I’d take em again if I could.

Do you remember the first time?

This post is quite special… No I’m not shutting the blog down so you don’t have to read my dribble anymore or the fact that I’m giving away free money to the first 10 people to ring me up and say “Guitar Caravan” (which I’m not)… But the fact that this is the 100th post to this blog.

There has been more than 100 blog posts of course as this is the third blog I’ve had.

To celebrate this fantasical moment in history I’m going to post post some bits from previous moments in time….

(my comments about the posts are in bold)

“Well, I had my interview at Metro, and was offered the job there n then. With the terms and conditions they were offering I would have been stupid not to accept.”


I lasted 9 weeks at metro! I have ended up back at ARRIVA via a 2nd spell at Parcelforce LOL and now, Just to complete the Circle I’m being borrowed by MK Metro as they are short of staff at this very moment.

There is a Meeting for all the people I owe money to to vote if they accept my IVA and I can work at getting out of Debt, Thats what’s going round my mind at the moment…. All I can do is keep my fingers crossed.

Oh and some nice person has given me a cold over the weekend so I feel like Poo and its not doing my Psoriasis any good either :/

(I’ll stop moaning now)

Oh and I had this Text’d to me this morning.. I know some strange People!


This woman has now moved to Aussie Land. My IVA has been going fine ever since that day (apart from a minor blip) and I haven’t stopped moaning 😛

“Instead I have found something called a Terrimundi, A Terrimundi is a little urn-shaped piece of pottery with a small slit in it to fit coins.

Wait an Hour… Be talked at for 10 Minutes

Well its been nearly a week since I saw my Specialist at the Hospital.

I was told to carry on with the MTX treatment (Still no booze Boo!)

Been given some “magical” shampoo that was supposed to calm my face down quite quickly, But to me it looks redder than before!

I went to my GP today as the mood swings I’ve been having lately are starting to annoy me. I’m been told to keep a “Mood Diary” which sounds a bit girly to me but I’ll give it a go. If these stroppy moods keep appearing then I’m gonna ask to come off the MTX…. Just not sure what treatment I’ll be allowed after that. 🙁
