Side Effect

Please meet Ana (who gave me permission to use this photo).

Ana is the Spanish shift nurse in charge. Very kind, happy and professional.

So far I have had no medical side effects from the Rituximab drip. My hands and balance are a little worse that’s all. I must stop thinking about doing a high wire act 😉

The only side effect I have had so far is Ana standing at my side which did have an effect on me 😀

Two sessions down. Two more to go !

 Time for some fun with you my bloggy friends.


As you know I am totally in love with you my real imaginary friend !

And this is your reaction (I think).

I absolutely (unreadable) adore (unreadable) Ralph because >>>>


1. I am really fussy about my man. Ralph is the only one for me as Mr Right, Mr Wrong and all in between are taken.


2. He’s sad, single and has cats. Heehee ! Oh, he has an apartment and an income. Sign here Ralph !


3. Reading this post is better than twiddling my thumbs at work.


4. I just got fired for reading this post at work.


 5. He always likes my posts if I lik his ! … oh, and he corrects my typos when I comment !


6. He has shown me how to become an Astronomer. I read his posts which has the effect of me hitting myself over my head with my laptop and I see stars. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐


7. When I see his photo my imagination runs wild. Reminds me of visiting a Safari Park.


8. After reading his posts I lay in bed tossing and turning. I wish the ship’s captain would stabilize this cruise ship !


9. I would love to run my fingers through his hair, but that would be such a waste of good fish fingers !


10. He can unlock my chastity belt any time ! Well, I AM young looking for my 327 years though a bit rusty !


11. My psychiatrist says he would be good for me. The psychiatrist, not Ralph !


12. My mother warned me about talking to strange men. That’s okay as Ralph is odd. Did I just say odd or strange ?


13. I want him for my husband. It’s not that I am desperate. More like suicidal if he says yes !


14. (Please insert your own reason in comments. Or don’t ! Whatever !)


So you do love me after all !


Ralph xox ❤

  5. Stay strong, stay positive and never, never lose your sense of humour! Having a lovely person like Ana at your side is a blessing!


    • That’s a great comment of yours for me to read Bev. Thank you so much. The drips are finished and I may not see nurse Ana again. It all depends on what my Neurologist will have planned for me in a couple of months time. Ralph xox ❤
