I just want to give everyone credit and support upon dealing with arthritis on a daily basis. It's incredibly hard to keep a stiff upper lip or pretend to others that things are just dandy. They are NOT.
One feels cheated that this has happened to their bodies, and sometimes I lash out on loved ones which is disheartening and totally unfair to them.
But pain changes our perspective, our inner being of who we once were, and that is a hard lot to contend with in my opinion.
I'm ranting a bit because I now have arthritis in my other foot too. Pain management here I come!
