My flare and symptoms increased so in the end I decided it’s better to go to hospital than suffer and get worse. The amazing view of table mountain and bunches of amazing flowers did wonders for my mental well-being. I focused on resting properly and allowing my body to get better.
I was very lucky to have my own room and much needed silence and rest. What I did not realize was that my doctor requested it for me (always dependent on availability of course). It made me realize once again that sometimes small things can have a big impact on helping your body heal but that your doctor doesn’t always think of requesting one on your behalf. If I ever go to hospital again, provided I’m in the state of mind to remember I would definitely ask my doctor to do the same again.
My doctor gave me a intravenous course of cortisone, Vit C & Vit B’s with glucose to help push my inflammation levels down a bit. CRP levels was roughly about 90 which is high.
I almost always experience a level of appreciation and get perspective again on what is important in life. That there are a lot of small insignificant things we often get so caught up on and easily put pressure on ourselves and loose perspective.
I’m trying my best to hold onto that perspective and pray that God will lead me and show me how to give my worries over to Him so that I can give my body the best chance of getting healthy and strong again.
