New Year Optimism ?

Just another quick update, 3 months on.

My New Year started with a series of disasters (which I won't go into here), so my hope for a better year than the last two evaporated pretty quickly. Mostly, these were unrelated to health issues, so at least that's something.

My latest PSA result is 0.4 (down from 0.5), so still going in the right direction, although a bit slower than I'd have liked. My car passed it's MOT too, so I'm beginning to feel a bit more optimistic again.

The acute polyarthritis still hasn't changed much, other than I'm now getting an issue with my neck. I've got an appointment with the physio department, to see if they can help at all, but it's not for several weeks yet.
