When train ads read your mind

So I’m sat on a Southern rail train on my way to the US for the most EPIC holiday with my favourite girls, and I look up and see these two ads staring straight back at me…

(Sorry – I’m posting this from my phone so you may not be able to quite see it)

Pic on the right – HOLIDAYYYYY

Pic on the left – an ad for joint and muscle pain relief

It’s a stupid observation but it these two ads are totally reflecting the juxtaposition of excitement and worry in my head all at once. The holiday being the angel on my shoulder and the joint pain the devil.

Me and my two besties are heading off this afternoon on the most epic road trip across America – we’re flying into Atlanta, picking up a mustang (yaassss) and the driving on to Nashville, New Orleans and Houston – all in just under 10 days). Excited is an understatement!!

But as my fellow PSA sufferers will know, there’s lots to prep when going on holiday.

Medication – luckily this hol falls in between my Humira injections (I take it every other Friday so I took it last week) and the MTX I take every Monday – so I’ve dosed up today and I’ll be fine to wait till I’m back to take my next one on Weds morning (just). So no doctors note or airport declarations for me this time.

Pain relief – packed a few codeine / naproxen / omeprazole just in case I need it. With lugging heavy cases around and sitting on long haul flights/car journeys and being on our feet exploring all day everyday for the next few days, I’m being sensible by taking it.

Stretchy bands and spikey ball – my back will most likely be the first thing to go if anything does, so I’m prepped with my faithful spikey ball for loosening tight muscles and my stretchy band for stretching limbs and easing aches and pains.

Anyway it’s almost time to get off the train for my next change en route to Heathrow.

I’ll keep you updated along the way on our journey!

Over and out!
