Hi Diddle it is just nice to know that when we are feeling so down you can express yourself. Knowing the people who read it totally understand. It has been years now I do not make arrangements to go out anywhere special. Just say to them depends on the day if I can hack it would love to come - if I know it will only enhance the pains no way - sad for all of us because we do miss out on a lot of nice things


Hi diddle,

I know how you feel its terrible when the pain is so bad and sleep just wont come or if it does its an hour at the most :( sleep deprevation making the pains even worse. After finding I was regulary pacing the house every night in pain and everyone was in bed i finally gave in and accepted some wrist splints not the most fashionable item but with them and my lovely hubby investing in an e-reader I can follow my passion of reading as I can manage to hold it.

I have 2 lovely children and a wonderful grandson so I feel so lucky and try to forget how horrid this illness is and how hard we constantly fight for people to understand it as my husband has multiple sclerosis we take each day as it comes and try to smile : ) xxx

Sending smiles and hugs to everyone xxxxxxxxxx


Glad you too got e reader or kindle they are brilliant would not be without mine yes the splints are not attractive but to be honest they ok in winter with long sleeves it s the summer they will look odd with a summer dress but there you go if they keep my lower arms and wrists stronger fashion goes out window and who is to say i wont start a new trend and everyone will want them ????? we could make our own business ? have a good day love to you diddle x
