i finally got a hospital appointment letter in the post the other day! i havent been since october when I had my biopsy, so they might have some kind of treatment in mind for me! its on the 15th of feb. so I'll post afterwards if theres any questions I need to ask people about treatment.

i'll probably be moaning if they don't say anything about treatment, so be prepared haha! :D

Hi Louise! SO glad for you! How does the medical system work in Ireland? Do you need to be referred by your primary care physician? Do you have a choice of rheumatologists? Just curious. Our sytem is the US is so dependent upon one's insurance plan - they seem to call all the shots. Cheers! Pat

Sorry but I'm not too sure how to answer your questions. I don't really know much about the medical system here in ireland. I'm 18, so when I get a bit older I'll probably know. At the moment I just do whatever the doctors say and my parents have looked after everything else(like insurance and stuff)

But what I do know is, i have insurance that covers costs of the hospital. I don't pick my doctors. i was just sent to the children's hospital by my local doctor and sent to the main dermatologist there and main rheumatologist.

if you have any other questions, i'll try answer them :D
