I haven't had much time to write this week.

A friend was staying with me so that cut into my internet addiction time - probably a good thing, I really want to cut down the amount of hours I waste online. I could've probably learnt another language in the time I've spent on Facebook.

I started the sulfasalazine on Tuesday - so far so good. No side effects that I can see, but I am still on the lowest dose, need to work up to 4 pills in a few weeks time. No acid yellow pee yet either, slightly disappointed. Maybe on the higher dosage.. (Sorry was that too much information?). I am glad it seems to agree with me though. As much as I tried not to worry, it's still quite intimidating taking a new drug.

I'm also going to Barcelona on Monday for the week. Never been before, can't wait!!! I warn you, a long post with lots of fish eye lens pictures will be coming shortly. I'm such a snap happy tourist, it's quite embarassing.

Well, the sun is shining, it's above 20 degrees which is almost unheard of in Scotland, so I am going to bid you adieu, Internet, and go play outside.


  1. Barcelona! You lucky girl! I've never been there, either, but it's on my list. Have lots of fun, and I hope you feel great! :) Laurie

  2. Thanks Laurie! I'm so excited. Bit worried about all the walking as I'm going with 5 fit friends but I'm sure they'll understand if I need a break. I hope you get to cross it off your list sometime soon too :)

  3. Oh my, I could go for a trip to Barcelona right now. Or Scotland with those temps! It's been so cold here! We had a ton of snow again the other morning!

    I can't wait to see your pics! AND, I'm glad that sulfasalazine seems to be doing good :)

  4. Ooh, Barcelone! Haven't gone myself, but a friend went a the pictures he brought back were gorgeous (it's on my list now). I've also seen a documentary about Gaudi and it made me want to go even more - I hope you have a wonderful time!

    Looking forward to further meds updates. Because of the acid yellow pee. ;)

  5. Thanks for the comments guys! Just got back yesterday and straight back to work - can't wait for the weekend. Will be postin the pics up in the next few days, had a brilliant time!!
