PostSubject: Struggling   Sat Jun 01, 2013 1:28 am

Ahhhh fed up. I started my new arthritis meds two months ago and they were brilliant. Slept through the night without waking in pain for the first time in over twenty years!!! Only problem is that they seriously impede your immune system and also when you get I'll you have to come off the meds as it takes longer for you to heal and if you stay on them it can kill you as the infection spirals out of control!!!

I started to feel groggy almost two weeks ago had a sore throat and high tempreture. I was due to take my meds that Tuesday. By Tuesday I felt really rough so had to see the doctor who told me not to take the meds, :-(. Oh well I was hoping to hang in at work for the week as this week I've been on holiday. Well if you can call it holiday. I can't shift the Bally throat infection my sinus's are infected too now, I've a Bally cold and to cap it of my arthritis is flaring. I feel exhausted!

VAM is the only thing keeping me sane. Sara has asked what I want for my birthday on 12th June so I'm hoping... I've got a French Resistance outfit on the way and I'm hoping Dan can help with a figure for it. My Dad and Brother fixed the outboard on the Assualt craft Ade gave Jemma, they had to take the motor apart. I can't wait to see her face. My mum repaired my basic soldier fatigues so when I collect them my combat soldier Ade had helped me with will be almost there.

I just hope I well enough to enjoy my birthday. I really value my AMMO buddies and this great little toy gives me as much pleasure now as it did back then.

Sorry for moaning but thanks for being there :-)

Thanks Rick. Your message means a lot mate.

As for the FR. It's the SOTC version so the bits I need are going to be tough. Camo radio. I actually need one for my GB too and his medal

I have a camo radio or 2, just negotiating on a deal with another. I'm sure I can spare 1when you are ready!

Sorry to hear your feeling rough mate, it does get you down when you are ill. As everyone has said though, this is the place to come for a chat and bit of support!

And nearly your birthday too, four days before mine!!!

Don't let this get the better of you Mark, you are a vital member of AMMO and a great contributor.

Keep your pecker up mate, you will get through it the human body is an amazing thing. I don't want to hijack your thread but I went through a major health scare in January. A suspected heart attack, at 42 that wasn't something I had envisaged, my life was completely shattered in the space of a doctors visit. She more or less told me my working life may be over, as a very fit not overweight male I had allsorts of thoughts going through my mind, stuff like losing our family home not seeing my young children grow into adulthood.I had to take three months off work have various unpleasant tests and basically went through hell.
The not knowing is the one that did me the most, thankfully after all the tests etc it was discovered all that was wrong with me was my heart wasn't functioning correctly. A course of drugs corrected this now i'm fighting fit again.
The drugs did initially take there toll on me, infact they made me feel terrible, however I got through it as I know you will.
The one thing that came out of my experience was I discovered Action Man again, I sold of my collection back in 2006 just as the 40th range came out.
I do not know why but the experience made me crave owning them again, so in February of this year i decided to track some down, a lucky find on a local flea market reinforced my desire to collect Vintage Action Man once again.
One thing led to another and here I am, a collector who is a member of this great little community, collecting can be a solitary experience as it's not something your average fourty something does.
However discovering this place and it's great members is a great place to be, I am rooting for you mate, just take each day as it comes, stay positive and stay strong for your family but more importantly yourself.
