In the early hours of last Monday (27th) I started tinidazole pulse 40. A couple of hours ago I took my last tini tab of this pulse ... and I'm still here. Hey, this has been two pulses in the same month! I have found this pulse less irksome than the last. I am weaker than ever but ever hopeful. The weather has been dreadful with torrential rain and blustery winds, so I haven't missed brisk power-walking along the Coastal Path (yeah, if only!).I do actually believe that for the lucky ones that are going to do well on this treatment, you can see signs within the first year. I am coming up to 4 years now. I only started rifampacin a couple of months ago. I could have tolerated it early on and should have gone for it then.Anyway, I have yet to book this year's holiday and am pretty sure that I'd be better off out of a wheelchair than in. I intend to be having a serious talk with them legs of mine.There's a funny thing. People sometimes look at me when I'm out & about in my power wheelchair. I can see them wondering ... what's the matter with me. When I explain that there's bugger all wrong with my legs ... I am just too lazy to walk, I always get a laugh.G.
