Foggy Newbie


Hi,just a quick intro while the pills are kicking in...I'm a 39 yr old single dad with ra,fibro and a few other medical & psychological issues,on 30+tablets daily as well as the weekly butrans patch.Had ra diagnosis 4 years ago and fibro diagnosed a few months back,Life's hard but I just keep struggling through each day and popping the pills :)

I'm awaiting bio tx for the ra as the mtx and leflunomide didn't touch me,in fact made me worse.

Well anyway thanks for listening/reading.

A big welcome to the forum, I am sure you will find it a great help, there is always someone around to chat to. We are a very friendly bunch.

Fibro is horrible and it must be hard being a single parent on top.I was a single parent with 4 children but luckily didn't have fibro then.

So once again welcome.

Hi Leighz77, welcome to this great group. Wether you want to visit regularly or just pop in now & again you will always find a helpful fellow sufferer that even if they can't help, can listen & that sometimes helps.

I'm often here in the early hours as I've never slept well & go for days without any then zonk out.

Hope you find this group as helpful & friendly as I do
