Whoo Hoo and here we are at the beginning of May, It is two years today that I was the diagnoses of Dermatomyositis was confirmed by my Neurologist Dr Gibb at Southampton Hospital after a Muscle Biopsy. This there then followed two weeks of scans and tests to rule out various causes of the disease.

And now two years down the track I am now almost back to eating normally but still some weakness in the swallowing, also I am a little bit more mobile than I was although still very weak in my leg muscles but this is getting better, I sometimes get very frustrated because of the things that I can't do but then have to remember that I will be 70 years of age in October, so age plus this stupid Myositis I am not doing to badly.

Well that is about it for today then folks not a very exciting day but very pleasant and hopefully the weather will get better for the May Bank Holiday this weekend
The first Monday of May is a bank holiday in the United Kingdom. It called May Day in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is known as the Early May Bank Holiday in Scotland. It probably originated as a Roman festival honoring the beginning of the summer season (in the northern hemisphere). In more recent times, it has been as a day to campaign for and celebrate workers' rights.
