Hello Elaine :0)

I’m new to the site too, albeit I’ve been ‘watching’ for a few weeks. I was diagnosed a couple of years ago and it’s been a non-stop roller coaster of fun and larks ever since. Waking up each day and wondering how hard it’s going to be to get from the car to the office is especially entertaining. I’m particularly enjoying this cold and icy weather - because a slippery walking surface is bags of tension-filled anxiety-ridden fun!

Still, my nails are looking lovely. Swings and roundabouts isn’t it?



my nails grew and grew when i was first diagnosed.

weird isn’t it?

whilst everything else was getting weaker my nails got stronger.

not fair - my nails are still a mess, especially in winter

Anyway - welcome Elaine and Anna.
