I am still new to this. had a bad day at work today, broke down and cried. I am still awaiting my appointment with a Rheumatoid specialist hence no medication. I am tied of the pain and tiredness, anxiety, painful and itchy scalp plus am a single parent and don't know what to do. I have figured out that the sun is not good for me as i start to feel unwell, like today, i went for a 15min walk during lunch and immediately after started feeling unwell. that really upset me hence the breakdown.
I have been feeling this way for years and the doctors have only just paid attention to me (after persistently going back as I knew something was definitely wrong). I had suffered from depression (still do sometimes) and I do not know if this is part of the symptoms. I cant sleep and found this forum and some of the post has been helpful. its so good to hear from other suffering the same thing as it made me know that I am not crazy or imagining the symptoms.
sorry if am dumping on anyone, but just feel like yelling (cant afford to wake my daughter as she will be petrified Lol).
sometimes it gets overwhelming and I cry and other times i feel i can handle it. my appointment is still about 8 weeks away and i don't know what to do now,
