I’m really glad that sometimes folks do actually ask me about Sarcoidosis, though I think I’ve never mentioned the erm, so-called timescales, let me try…
Up to six months is usually diagnosis and for most who get this shit it leaves within about this period of time.
Up to 12 months, by now some pretty strong drugs are being given, usually started by massive dosages followed by slow reduction.
Up to 24 months, the drugs usually work and the body adjusts back to some kind of normality but, damage by the sarcoid remains.
Up to 5 years, this is a tough one as by now the ‘sarcoid’ has fallen into a period of ‘the medics really do not know what to do’ and that is not their fault. Sarcoidosis is very rare, especially after this distance of time. More drugs are tried, including chemotherapy types.
Up to 8 years, the drugs are as bad as the sarcoidosis, especially if, whats the point.
Up to 10 years, not alot is known but sarcoids can and do live beyond this timescale.
Up to erm, haven’t a fucking clue.
The mind games are bonkers, drugs are taken to try help with that. The mind say’s you can do something but you just can’t, but try indeed.
Sarcoidosis, it isn’t a battle to conquer it, we hope it simply fucks off, as it can but, the body remains damaged and does not recover, partly due to the long term usage of drugs.
My beard is getting shorter, that’s been mentioned a few times but, I will carry on writing about sarcoidosis as not many do, especially after so long.
I’ve changed alot since the below video, now a very old 53 years of age and tired.
