Thank you very much for taking the time to pass on your advice. It is only recently that I have started to really get to grips with my condition. For too long I simply accepted it as an inevitable part of my life and accepted that what the doctors told me as irrefutable - basically that there is no cure and I should simply live with it and if it is too bad temporarily suppress it with steroids.
I am starting too see it in a different light now and I think perhaps the most important discovery for me so far is that I am the only one that can truly deal with this - I know the symptoms and I intend to learn as best I can what works for me personally.
This is a fantastic forum and I intend to spend some time going through the various approaches people have taken,
