Hello Everyone........I have strayed into the Lupus site although I 'only' have Sjogren's.
You are the most active site and from what I have seen before we share lots of the same problems.
What has brought me here todayare the problems of getting out of the bath. I can get in easily but when I try to get out my legs are too weak to get from crouching to standing.
I should add that I am rather overweight and 73 years old.
If I knew I was not the only one having this problem I would feel a bit better. We have been through all the gadgets and so on but none of them seem to be any help.
I love having a hot soak as it makes me feel much better all round but it seems I will have to shower instead.
Today, although I got out eventually with my husband's help ,it has made me cry and that isn't very becoming when you're in your seventies !
As someone on radio always ended by saying ' If you have been, thanks for listening !'
